White Spots On Trees

You might have a scale insect infestation if you notice an unusually high number of white spots on your twigs, branches, or leaves. Scale insects are plant parasites that feed on internal plant fluids. Thousands of small white bugs make up the white patches you see. Homeowners frequently mistake them for mould or pieces of the bark. They can range in size from flat, 1/16″ long specks to bigger, nearly ladybug-sized lumps that cover smaller twigs.

Stunted Leaf Growth

There are several typical causes of sickly or small-looking leaves, including insects, diseases, or other health issues. If you’ve discovered that your leaves are not producing to their full capacity, it may be worthwhile to talk to a professional about your worries. Stunted leaf grow may be a clear sign of your tree(s) being infested or diseased and C&H Tree Surgery can help.

Chewed Foilage

You can be dealing with a number of different insect issues if you detect little holes or irregular, jagged edges in shrub or tree leaves that have been chewed. This could be a problem with insect larvae, beetles, and many more. Various insects leave behind various chew marks, and occasionally they even gnaw on different areas of the leaf. For example, beetles like to feed on the centre of the foliage, skeletonizing the leaves and leaving only the veins. 


Further Reasons

unordinary growths

On the underside of the building, a fungus called Fomes fomentarius has millions of tiny white pores. It will keep growing after it affixes to a tree until it is removed. 

A tree’s internal decay and the possibility of the underlying section of the tree being dead or dying are both indicated by large, odd fungus-like growths on the trunk or branch of the tree. 

If you notice any indications of this on a tree you own, you should contact a service right once such as C&H tree surgery. Some trees can be saved with the appropriate care. Our secure tree removal services help protect your house and property for people who are unable to do so.

peeling bark

Peeling bark is a further indication of a disease in your tree. Your tree’s bark is crucial because it safeguards the trunk’s interior and maintains the tree’s health. If the bark begins to peel off too much, the tree can lose the required nutrients and perish. 

It is important to remember that some trees commonly undergo minor bark peeling; nevertheless, if you notice a significant degree of peeling, get in touch with us right away. One of our colleagues would be pleased to assist.
