Services That Address Sick Trees and a Variety of Tree Diseases
The challenge with tree sickness and prevention is that most homeowners don’t even realize they’re looking at the symptoms of a sick tree until it’s too late. There are measures that can be employed to deal with tree sickness, but as any physician will tell you, it’s much easier to prevent an illness than to treat one. Kansas City tree care means knowing what to look for before it has a chance to grow and spread.
If you’re ready to be proactive about tree sickness prevention, contact the professional arborists at Eisenhower Tree Care to get them professionally inspected and serviced. We can also confirm any suspicions you may have about an infected or sick tree that’s showing symptoms of illness.
Eisenhower Tree Care is one of few Kansas City tree service providers that offers a holistic compost tea treatment for tree sickness and prevention. This is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional targeted chemical treatments, especially if you’re worried about your kids, pets, or the wildlife. Send us a message to learn more.
Signs of Tree Diseases
Have you noticed one of your trees looks drab? Is it wilting or rife with dead, drooping branches? Are its leaves yellowing or filled with unexplained holes? Do you see craters or splits in its trunk?
These are just some of the questions that we ask when we’re trying to identify sick trees. Unfortunately, the greater Kansas City area plays host to several threatening tree diseases.
oak wilt disease
Dutch Elm disease

These are some of the most common questions property owners ask us about tree sickness and prevention.
Are there any particular trees I should be concerned about, in terms of preventing disease?
Any tree can be susceptible to disease. However, those that have sustained storm damage often are at higher risk because gashes in the bark or broken limbs expose vulnerable points for fungi and disease to creep into.
Trees that do not get proper fertilization or nutrients are also more likely to become sick, as are trees that are or have been infested by insects in the past.
And finally, certain tree species are more susceptible to species-specific illnesses, like elms, oaks, and chestnuts.
Do pests and insects cause tree disease?
Yes! Local pests can make your tree sick. Learn more on our pests and insects page.
