Solutions for Sick and Dying Trees in Oklahoma City
Performing routine maintenance on your trees is always the safe bet. Not only does regular maintenance help to improve the appearance of your trees, but it can also help reduce the cost of tree maintenance over time. We recommend that you work with the ISA Certified Arborists at Vision Tree Service to develop a custom maintenance package for your yard – it’s the proactive choice for homeowners.
However, there are times when trees can become sick and begin to die despite all efforts to avoid it. As homeowners, we can take necessary precautions and complete proactive tree maintenance. Situations that can call for a tree’s removal include:
- It isn’t possible to save a tree
- The tree is a danger to nearby property
- It can potentially damage the surrounding landscape
When situations such as these arise, it’s critical to have an experienced tree service provider perform safe, professional tree removal.

The unfortunate can occur, with a tree suffering damage or disease. When tree removal is required, it is a task that needs to be performed by an arborist with an understanding of the issues facing the tree and the surrounding landscape. Issues can include invasive pests, diseases, and storm damage, among other factors.
Invasive Pests Can Damage and Destroy Previously Healthy Trees
- What are Termites?
- One of the most studied insects on the planet, termites are unique in that they survive solely on wood. When termites ‘recycle’ fallen trees and decaying stumps, it can benefit the surrounding landscape; unfortunately, they usually wreak havoc as they feast on living trees.
- What are Carpenter Ants?
- Sizeable ants indigenous to forests worldwide, carpenter ants make their home in the holes their mandibles have bored into wood (it’s a special treat when it’s dead, damp wood).
- What are Boring Beetles?
- Longhorn beetles, bark beetles and weevils, and metallic flat-headed borers are all common species of the woodboring beetle family. These destructive insects eat and destroy wood matter. In a forest setting, woodboring beetles can serve a beneficial purpose. The situation can become dangerous when your home or landscape is involved.
What Does It Mean For a Tree to be Diseased?
When a tree is diseased, something is causing the tree and its systems to no longer function properly. Causes can range from pathogens such as fungi and bacteria to flowering plants and more — for example, canker diseases, which result from a fungal or bacterial pathogen. Canker diseases block a tree’s vascular system, impeding the flow of nutrients. Species of trees can be more susceptible to different dangers, such as blight, wilt, powdery mildew, or root rot.
