Posts Tagged ‘Tree Decay’

Myers Park is one of the oldest and most prominent areas of Charlotte, NC. It began development soon after World War I, and many of its trees are almost 100 years old. Charlotte is known for its majestic trees, and now Myers Park is saddled with the challenge of how to save them. As you see in the photos, many of the street lined trees have never had an adequate area to grow, and are now being invaded by roads, driveways, and sidewalks. Shrub Doctor is also seeing the signs of decay in several trees. As a tree ages, it often experiences root rot diseases. As the roots decay, the tree becomes very vulnerable to uprooting in a storm. Attached are photos of fungal conks growing on the root flairs at the tree’s base.. These trees will become more and more dangerous as the decay progresses. In one photo Shrub Doctor identified a huge tree that is slowly declining. Notice in the second photo that its directly in front of a very beautiful home. This is just one of several examples that can be seen while walking in Myers Park. If you see issues with your trees give Shrub Doctor a call.
