Watch Out for Wood Decay

When your tree suffers damage, fungi can begin to grow and cause wood decay or rot. Exposed wood allows for organisms to grow and eventually multiply. Over time, the wood will weaken and break off. Often, rot will occur within a tree and is not noticeable to the visible eye. For noticeable damage, it’s best to remove any  damaged parts of the tree. Infected trees can drop limbs and the fungi can spread to neighboring trees.
