Trees are a valuable part of our environment.  They provide shelter and shade, help prevent erosion, and add beauty and monetary value to property.  Unfortunately, many factors can cause trees to become unhealthy and lose their aesthetic value or die:  environmental stresses, site problems, animal injury,  infectious diseases, and insect infestations.  In many cases, more than one factor may be involved.  A correct diagnosis of the problem is the important first step in trying to save an unhealthy tree.
