If you are struggling to know whether you should keep your tree or remove it, then you need to know about some simple fundamental indicators that tell if the tree can be revived or you need to bid it adieu.
If the tree is dead, and the branches are falling off, then there is no point letting it stand. Left to stand, the tree only becomes more dangerous and proves to be a threat to your property and plants.
However, the fact that is to be kept in mind is that not all trees that look dead are dead. There are always relocation and treatment options available. Think of it like, just like humans, trees might also get some disease, and just like we do not discard humans, we should not cut down our trees. We should instead try to cure them with appropriate methods.
Some of these diseases are easily treatable using water and some nutrients, while others might require chemical treatments, which can cost hefty amounts. So another consideration that comes into the decision-making process is budget. The costs of treating a tree vary per the size of the tree.
There can be several causes of a tree’s decline. For some species, the reason for decay can be unavailability of nutrients or poor weather conditions. If you are planning on reviving your tree, it is reasonable to know the cause of the decline in the first place. Revive, only if you can make it survive in the long run.
You must have a realistic expectation of any treatment for a distressed tree. Tree care is not an exact science, plus your tree cannot speak to you about the problems it is facing. You need to assess the cause, understand the problem, take remedial measures as soon as possible. The sooner you start with the treatment, the higher your tree’s chances will live long enough for your kids and grandkids to climb it!
