A tree that has several V- or U-shaped trunks is not a sign that a tree is in imminent danger of falling, but it is worth watching and watching because it indicates a structural weakness that could cause the fall at some point. Peeling the completely missing bark or bark could mean that the tree is dead or dying in that particular area, making it a likely place for the tree to break and fall. It is one of the most common signs of a sick tree and indicates that the roots are rotting, in which case the tree could be a strong storm away from falling. We provide tree removal, tree pruning, disease prevention and other tree services in southeastern Michigan.
Trees have a way of pruning themselves, so losing branches may mean that the tree is not getting enough nutrients to stay at its current size or that it is facing an insect infestation. Some trees will take a while to remove their leaves, but if your tree doesn't have a single leaf in August, there's a major problem. If a tree has two arms of the same size that branch off from the same part of the tree (think of a Y shape), the junction of the two branches may be weak.
