Tree Disease Diagnosis is both a science and an art. It’s a science because the practitioner has to know how a tree works correctly before he or she can know what’s wrong. The practitioner has to know the science of fungi and bacteria before he can make a diagnosis. He has to know tree physiology and anatomy. But knowing the science isn’t enough because symptoms can be misleading. That’s why they call a medical profession a practice. It requires practice and judgement. We at Boulder Tree have over 40 years practice. We’ve seen about everything that could go wrong with a tree in Boulder. You can trust that we’ll give the answers you need.

Please don’t wait until it’s too late. Once parts of the tree are dead, they’re dead forever. Trees can never regenerate tissue in the same location the way animals can. Trees fight disease by walling off diseased tissue. They change the chemistry of the cells around the diseased tissue to make the cells indigestible to the pathogens. Once they’re walled off, those woody tissues are lost to the tree forever. The sooner we catch a problem, the less tissue is lost to the tree. We recommend that your trees get a regular checkup to catch the problems early before the disease and its effects become widespread. By the time the average homeowner notices a problem, it may be too late.
