Our tree experts evaluate the health of your trees for you. If anything concerns you about the appearance and possible health of your tree, give us a call at Gills Tree Service. One of our experts will visit your home to look at what’s happening with your tree or trees.
The most important tool a tree expert has is their eyes. They will closely examine your trees and let you know if they are truly sick.
First, they will start at the bottom of your tree, beginning with the roots. They are looking for signs of decay.
Second, they will look at the collar—the point at which the trunk and roots meet at the surface. Here, they are looking for bark that has fallen off the tree. They are also looking for cracks in the wood.
Next, they will closely inspect the trunk. Here, they are looking for large, deep cracks in the wood. If they spot any overgrowths, this indicates decay.
Finally, they are looking at the top or crown of your tree. Here, they are looking for bare branches, missing bark and no bud growth.
