How to Identify Dead Trees

Many things can lead to the death of a tree, including old age, insects, various diseases, fungus or wildfires. We know that for the most part, many trees live for decades or even centuries. However, if you suspect a tree in your yard is not doing so well, there are a few ways to determine whether or not the tree is dead.

Trees are important for many reasons. Not only do they beautify your landscape and provide shade, they are also used in everything from buildings and wood floors to paper. The death of a flower, shrub, or other plant in your yard may not be as important as the death of a tree, that somehow seems sad and even alarming.
