Also look overtop of the right side of the house you will see a tree that looks dead? Also ours. This was what happened last summer and it wasn't only mine it was the whole area which was what prompted me to call the tree service I spoke of that was interviewed on the local news. He came out and wanted to do tree injections $600, like I said and if we didn't they would be dead this spring.

This pic might not do no justice and might have to dig it off my server and upload the uncompressed picture for you but my point is, this is what I'm watching for. It's only on the tree closest to the street were talking about now, but last year it was all of them on the leaves up high.

Also as I said, was in town again today and repeat of last summer. I see a lot of tree's worse off then mine and YELLOW as if it were fall of the year??

Think I may just be over reacting with mine? I don't know, I mean yea I see your point and get some of the bark back but also wondering if this is something I can't prevent no matter what I do?
I do not know how to help you from this far away. I think if you follow my inquiry and statements I could tell the tree in question was once crowded by another tree. Then I saw the root cut. I have to think the yellowing, and the root cut are related.

It could be as simple as not enough feeder roots or something more serious.

I would like to see more of that root cut exposed to look for any signs of fungal decay, rot or other concerns.

Do you know how to look for and spot hypoxylon canker?

Again I am not an Arbortist but I do work with some high value trees and consult with one regularly on many concerns.

Do you use Phosphorus fertilizer? If you do that could stop the Mycorrhiza relationship with the tree roots system. May want to look at some soil injection around the tree and back off the Phosphorus.

So far you are doing the right things but I just want to make sure there is nothing else going on. We are about to the end of what I can do from here.
