Do you need to find the best tree thinning service in the Tri Cities? We are it. However, if you’re looking to tackle the job yourself, we are happy to help by providing whatever information we can.

Do the leaves look healthy, or are they yellowing, withering, blotched, undersized, or chewed by insects? Are there cracks in the trunk or branches? Are there signs of root rot? Root decay is often difficult to detect but can potentially cause your tree to fail. One sign of root decay are mushrooms growing on or near the base of your tree. If you determine that one of the above conditions exists, and you are unsure how to address the situation in a way that contributes to the long-term health of your tree, consult a certified arborist. See ‘How to Hire An Arborist’ for more information.

What trauma has the tree already been through? Has it been topped? Are there signs of decay? Have there been activities around the root zone that may have compacted the soil? Examine your tree on a regular basis. Look for signs of potential problems and compare that problem to what you know about your tree species. • Are limbs dying at the ends? • Is the shape of the tree unbalanced, or is the tree leaning to one side?
