Preventing Tree Disease Through Proper Care

Trees are a vital resource to humans and the environment, providing oxygen, food, and shelter. However, in order for them to thrive, they must be properly cared for and maintained. Unfortunately, trees can easily fall victim to disease, which can cause significant damage or even death. Therefore, it is important to stay vigilant and take preventative measures to ensure the health of your trees.

Identify The Tree’s Disease

The first step in preventing tree disease is to properly identify it. This can be done by observing the symptoms of the disease, such as discolored leaves, wilting branches, or mold on the bark. Additionally, it is important to be aware of any pests or animals that may be present, as they can also be a sign of disease. Once a tree has been identified as having a disease, it is important to take action immediately in order to prevent the spread of the disease to other trees. When you partner with our tree care service in Kansas City, we offer diagnostic and treatment services. Call today.

Invest in Professional Tree Care Services

One of the most effective ways to prevent tree disease is to practice proper tree care. This includes providing adequate water, nutrients, and air circulation to the tree, as well as pruning it regularly. Additionally, it is important to properly fertilize the soil around trees, as this can help to promote healthy root growth and decrease the chance of disease. Finally, it is important to inspect trees regularly for signs of disease, as this can help to catch it early and prevent its spread. Call our team of certified arborists for a tree inspection and for regular tree care services today.

Inspect Your Trees

In addition to proper tree care, it is important to regularly inspect trees for pests and animals. These critters can be a major source of tree disease and should be removed as soon as possible. Additionally, it is important to treat trees with fungicides and insecticides in order to prevent the spread of diseases. These treatments should be done on a regular basis by a professional in order to be effective. Get started today.

Be Aware of Any Surrounding Dangers

Finally, it is important to be aware of the environment around your trees. This includes ensuring that proper drainage is present, as standing water can be breeding grounds for pests and disease-causing organisms. Additionally, it is important to be aware of environmental pollutants, especially if trees are near roads and highways. Trees can also suffer in extreme temperatures and from storms and hail.


As living organisms, trees can suffer from diseases and ill-care that can cause them to be unhealthy and even to die. It’s important to invest in proper tree care in order to prevent life-threatening diseases. We offer many tree services that can keep your trees healthy, from tree trimming and pruning to stump removal and tree bracing.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • Safety Tree Service is always on time. They do what they say they are going to do. There is no smoke and mirrors with Safety Tree Service. I only recommend his company to all of my clients because I know he will treat them with respect and care.

    - Patrick F.( Kansas City, Missouri Tree Removal and Trimming, February 2017 )
  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
