Do the leaves look healthy, or are they yellowing, withering, blotched, undersized, or chewed by insects? Are there cracks in the trunk or branches? Are there signs of root rot? Root decay is often difficult to detect but can potentially cause your tree to fail. One sign of root decay are mushrooms growing on or near the base of your tree. If you determine that one of the above conditions exists, and you are unsure how to address the situation in a way that contributes to the long-term health of your tree, consult a certified arborist. See ‘How to Hire An Arborist’ for more information.

What trauma has the tree already been through? Has it been topped? Are there signs of decay? Have there been activities around the root zone that may have compacted the soil? Examine your tree on a regular basis. Look for signs of potential problems and compare that problem to what you know about your tree species. • Are limbs dying at the ends? • Is the shape of the tree unbalanced, or is the tree leaning to one side?

If not, consult an arborist about how and when to water during unusually dry summers. Pest management Each tree species is susceptible to a different collection of insect and disease problems. Learn how to identify the problems that are specific to your tree and the available remedies. Check your tree often for signs of stress. Many problems are more readily and inexpensively treated when diagnosed at an early stage. Pruning Find out how your tree responds to pruning. Typically, mature trees require the removal of dead and broken limbs only. 

Some trees may also benefit from the removal of branches that may harm the health of the tree in the future. Look for branches that are rubbing or are attached to the trunk at a sharp angle. If the canopy of the tree is very dense, thinning can improve wind firmness and reduce wind damage to the tree and underlying property. Always consult a professional arborist before pruning a mature tree. Find out about the history of your tree.

Mature Tree Care

To provide the best possible care, it is important to know what kind of tree you have. Different species respond differently to tree care practices. If you are unsure, an arborist can identify your tree and advise you about the particulars of the species. In addition, there are numerous resources on the internet, and in print that you may consult to learn about your tree. 

Water Your mature tree has an extensive root system that can supply your tree with the water it needs—even during the summer months. Unless there is a particularly long dry spell, you do not need to water your tree. When doing your homework, find out if your tree is drought tolerant.
