Causes of Tree Stress

You will find that injury and disease are either abiotic or biotic based, and can infect other trees that are in the area.
Abiotic stresses: Caused by the environment and include nutrients, water, temperature, salt stresses due to excessive fertilizer, and air.
Biotic Stresses: These are outside effects, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, insects, and much more.
Other Tree Stresses: Tree is over watered or under watered. Ninety percent of new trees die because of this. Tree is over or under fertilized, root damage due to construction, irrigation, or renovations or poor soil quality.

Caring for Trees:

Deep water infrequently. This makes for more drought-resistant trees.
Mulching is also good and helps shade tree roots, inhibit weeds from growing, puts beneficial nutrients back into the soil and more.
Tree trimming removes dead wood and undesirable limbs so the tree will grow properly and not become a problem for your home or other surroundings.
