Diagnosing Phytophthora

Official diagnosis by the arbor care professional involves investigating the habitat grounds for standing water and inadequate drainage and thoroughly examining the tree. Wilted leaves, early foliage loss, bark wounds and cankers are symptoms that the infected tree exhibits. Compacted soil, standing water, and poor drainage throughout the outdoor residential habitat all contribute to phytophthora reproduction and weaken the tree's root structure. The Fort Worth experienced tree company will study the diagnosis report and personalize the immediate treatment needed and the on-going maintenance care required.

Treatment for phytophthora

Preventing phytophthora invasion from ever occurring is the best way to battle this root destroyer because an infected tree can die within a matter of several weeks! Deep root fertilization administered by a tree service maintains a healthy root system and a one year warranty on any treatment is included. Fungicide applications scheduled and directed by a certified arborist protect the tree from this deadly pathogen. Trees must be protected from construction projects within close vicinity that may compact soil and impede root growth and low ground areas must be corrected to restore adequate drainage.
