Leaf Spots, Pests, And Storm Damage Are Signs You Might Need Emergency Tree Service | Weatherford, TX

Have you ever walked by a tree and noticed black or brown spots on the leaves? In most cases, this is the sign of a fungal infection. Sometimes the infection will confine itself to ornamental concerns, but how do you know? Sometimes infections progress to damage the health of the tree or worse–to kill it. When you have a tree problem like a tree disease, pest infestation, or storm damage, you need emergency tree service.

S&P Tree Service serves property owners in and near Weatherford, TX, with a full lineup of tree care solutions. We provide a full continuum of care for trees, from tree preservation and trimming to tree removal and stump grinding. Don’t wait to contact us for emergency tree service if your trees are in trouble.

Tree Diseases and Your Landscape

Leaf spot isn’t the only fungal infection that can plague a tree. There are many serious tree diseases, like Dutch elm disease, that can quickly cause a tree’s demise. What’s worse is that the contagion can quickly spread to other trees on your landscape–even your neighbors’ trees. The sooner you call S&P Tree Service for emergency tree service, the sooner you can stop the spread of the pathogen and possibly save your tree.

The trees growing in your landscape are actually property assets. In many cases, trees boost property value. When a fungal infection or other tree disease severely impacts your tree, there may be nothing left to do but remove it. Our trained arborists can visit your home or commercial property to inspect your tree or trees carefully. We can diagnose the problem and provide the best remedy–even if that remedy must be tree removal for the sake of your property.

Pest Infestations

Pests can also damage the trees on your property and spread tree diseases. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to identify which pests, especially of the insect variety, are welcome in your landscape and which aren’t. Our arborists have the training and experience needed to quickly diagnose a pest problem.

Some pests like certain types of moths will target your trees’ foliage. In worst-case scenarios, they can actually defoliate the whole tree, which, naturally, impedes the tree’s health. Scale insects can cause tree death by eating the tree bark’s interior lining. Many types of insects can negatively impact a tree’s health but when left unchecked, pest infestations can destroy the tree and then threaten surrounding trees. A pest infestation is a sure sign that you need emergency tree service.

Storm Damage

Weatherford, TX, like the rest of Texas, has experienced some rather destructive storms. Lightning strikes, wind damage, and flooding damage can wreak havoc with the health and well-being of your landscape’s trees. If your tree is struck by lightning or winds crack off tree limbs, you should contact our tree care experts to assess the damage. Flooding, also, can affect a tree’s stability and set the stage for fungal infections to erupt.

Our arborists can inspect storm-damaged trees in order to apply the ideal tree preservation solutions. In the case of wind or lightning damage, it’s often advisable to prune away the section that’s been affected so that the tree doesn’t become vulnerable to infection and pests–as it may once it’s been damaged by a storm. If your tree suffers any storm or wind damage, contact us for our emergency tree service.

In cases where the tree becomes so damaged that it requires removal, you can rely on us for that service too. If it’s in a precarious part of your landscape, we can also remove it safely with our crane tree removal service. Our technicians also provide stump grinding service.

Emergency Tree Service and Your Trees’ Health

S&P Tree Service can help you maintain the health and beauty of your Weatherford, TX, landscape with our tree care solutions. Some customers may wonder if their landscape really needs emergency tree service complemented by the skills of trained arborists. It’s important to call in our arborists at the first sign of tree distress because it’s easier to contend with problems like tree disease and tree pests before they get out of hand. In many cases, our remedies can save a tree and prevent the issue from causing further damage.

Once a tree’s health becomes so severely damaged that it cannot be saved, the tree becomes a serious property liability. As it’s dying (and after it’s dead), it’s more likely to lose limbs during strong winds and storms or topple over. You certainly don’t want your sick trees to fall onto your home, business, or vehicle. You also don’t want your sick trees to pose a risk to people or pets.

Our arborists will carefully assess your tree’s health and recommend the best course of action. We can do everything in our power to preserve trees unless the tree in question is beyond saving. In those cases, we can quickly and safely remove the tree. Tree removal is also important in these cases in order to protect the other trees and plants on your landscape. Pests and diseases can move from tree to tree, affecting your whole landscape.

S&P Tree Service is devoted to caring for all types of trees that grow on our customers’ properties and offers dependable emergency tree service. We are skilled in cultural controls as well as fungicides and pesticides when those remedies are necessary. If you need any type of tree care solution, including tree trimming or inspections, you can contact us for service. Because we offer emergency tree service, you don’t have to wait long to get the help you need to maintain your tree’s health or the safety of your property. Contact us with your questions or to schedule a service appointment.
