Tree Limb Cracks
Trunk Damage, Discolorations, or Growths
Finally, the last thing to check for when leaves begin falling from trees is the appearance of root girdling. Root girdling occurs when tree roots begin to wrap around the base of the tree and slowly choke the life out of the tree. This is often caused by trees being planted at the incorrect depth, with too much soil or mulch covering the very bottom of the tree. A tree suffering from root girdling will look like a utility pole where it meets the soil, with no visible root flare extending outward above the soil. Although root girdling can occur and be discovered at any time in the year, property owners are more likely to notice the problem when they are up close to the tree removing and clearing away fallen leaves.
