How to Spot a Diseased Tree

While we always advise professional help, there are plenty of ways to identify a diseased tree on your own. Whether you’re looking for residential or commercial services, the signs of disease are the same. Although these can be difficult to identify in their early stages, soon enough, you’ll be able to see the indications of an unhealthy tree. Be on the lookout for the following symptoms of a tree in poor condition:


Trees usually begin decaying on the inside, but you’ll eventually see this spread to the outside.

Dry Leaves

Dry leaves or discolored leaves may indicate something is amiss with your tree.

Gray Growths

Certain fungi appears as hard, gray growths on several different types of tree. Our team can identify if these growths mean trouble.

Peeling Bark

Have you noticed your tree’s bark peeling back and falling off? If this occurs in excess, it is often a signal something is wrong.

Dead Branches

If you notice weak, easily-breakable branches, it’s time to call an arborist. If dead branches have already started falling, you may need emergency tree removal.

Fluid Leakage

If your tree is leaking fluid, it’s a telltale sign of disease. It often comes with a foul odor and may pool around the tree’s base.


If your tree begins growing at an odd angle or becomes top-heavy and lopsided, it may have damage that needs to be addressed.
