The deadliest fungal pathogen infecting trees is Ganoderma. Commonly known also as heart rot, it literally destroys a tree from the inside out, causing it to become a danger to life and property. It invades trees that have suffered minor root damage. Large mushroom-like structures appear at the tree’s baseline and spores spread swiftly via water and wind. The tree’s vascular system is prevented from dispersing water and nutrients throughout its structure and it exhibits premature defoliation, branches falling, dead branches and a thinning, weak appearance. This lethal tree disease cannot be controlled; therefore, contact an experienced tree company immediately if you observe these symptoms or your tree exhibits signs of a dying tree.
Due to Ganoderma’s aggressive nature, diagnostic evaluation is expedited by the ISA certified arborist. The shelf structures are definite indication of Ganoderma, and decayed bark is peeled away to reveal off-white strands of tissue. Laboratory testing of the root system is further confirmation of Ganoderma presence. After assessing the tree’s structural integrity, the tree evaluation report is presented. The arborist that treats sick trees personalizes a care and treatment plan to ensure that you and your residence are safe and protected.
