Q.How Do You Diagnose a Tree Ailment?

Jules added on May 28, 2011 | Answered

My evergreen tree looks like it’s dying and is covered with Lichen, but I read that that is not the source of the problem. I’d like to try and save the tree but I don’t know what it needs. Help!!

You can contact a local arborist or take pictures of the tree (both close up on the actual damage and from far away so they can see the whole tree) to your local extension office. They will be able to help diagnose. The extension office will often do it free of charge.
