How Vulnerable are Your Trees to Pests and Blights?

It seems that there is an army of pests and an almost number of fungal diseases attacking Columbus's trees these days. Not surprisingly many property owners are wondering how vulnerable are my Houston trees to these threats?
This question is hard to answer because every tree is different. Experts note that some species are more vulnerable than others. Red Oaks are more vulnerable to Oak Wilt but all Oaks are threatened by that deadly fungus. Most tree experts think that native species of trees are in greater danger because many of the pests are invasive or exotic insects and diseases. Examples of this menace include the Emerald Ash Borer and the Asian Long Horned Beetle, both of which are threatening trees in the Midwest.
The sad truth is that all trees are vulnerable to these pestilences these days. The number of invasive species seems to be increasing everyday and the destruction they do is multiplying. Such menaces often attack the largest trees that add the most value to properties. All property owners need to realize that all of their Los Angeles Trees are potentially in danger from such threats. The problem is actually worse than homeowners imagine, because insects and fungal infections can kill a healthy tree in a matter of months. That is why it is so important to get your trees inspected by a good tree service that employs professional arborists on a regular basis. The pros can spot the threats before they get out of control and kill your trees. If there is a fungal infection or insect infestation, professionals can often stop it by spraying. If they cannot they can remove the infected or infested tree in a safe and speedy manner so the threat does not kill all of your trees. The threats to Austin’s trees and trees all over the country are increasing everyday. Therefore it is vital that every property owner employ a professional tree service to preserve the beauty and value of his or her property.
