Can anyone tell me what disease these trees have and if it is treatable?
Theyre being girdled like a turniquet for one thing
The grey stuff looks like lichen
Can it b treated?
Lichen show up usually, (usually, not always) when the tree is in distress, whether by drought or too much rain or environmental or age or insects or malnutrition or......
so in other words there is a underlying more serious issue? The trees have been n more distress the past few years. Each spring we cut more and more dead limbs out. Eventually we will b cutting down the trees themself
Have an arborist look at them, they look old, might be just age. If they are 20+ years old, things start wearing on them. But have them checked out to see if they are lacking or have something on/in them (disease and/or insect), see if they can do something to strengthen them
ive been told lichen is harmless but thats alot!
Just FYI 20 years for a tree is a drop in the bucket
That’s not considered an old tree
where I grew up we had apple trees older than the US constitution (they were planted by Aaron burr) and maple trees even older than that.
however, I read a report years ago that said urban trees life span is approx 8-10 years before a project, accident or change in zoning tears them out and replaced them.
