Providers of tree services in Chesapeake know that one of the most magical times of the year for homeowners and property owners is when the spring season arrives in Virginia and the leaves of the trees begin to take bloom. But what should you do if the weather starts to warm up and your favorite tree fails to burst into its signature blossoms? A deciduous tree that doesn’t grow leaves or flowers in the spring is the first sign of trouble that many property owners fear—the possibility that their tree is dead or dying.

To tell if your tree is healthy or not, use the “scratch test.” First, break a branch off the tree and snap it in half; if the branch snaps readily with a hearty “crack” without arching, it’s likely dead. If your tree has many dead branches, chances are that the tree is dying. Find a large branch and scratch back the first layer of brown bark with your fingernail. If the tree is alive, the layer below the branch’s bark should be a vibrant green color. If it’s dry or brown, the tree is dead.

If the scratch test leads you to believe that your tree is dead or on its last legs, you should call a qualifiedtree service company in Virginia Beach, VA to remove the tree as soon as possible. Dead trees host a ton of property liability hazards; they may fall with little notice after their roots have weakened, they may host pests and parasites, and they may even infect other trees if an infection kills them.
