Hampton Roads, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2017 -- Property owners who have noticed a large but isolated chunk of dead bark on their tree as the summer comes to an end are encouraged to check out this month's blog post from Tarzan Tree Services, which helps residents recognize the most common signs of sunscald.
This month, Tarzan Tree Service offers tips on protecting trees from sunscald, as well as knowing when it's time to call for tree removal in Chesapeake Sunscald can become a serious issue if left untreated for too long.
For most tree owners, the knowledge that too much sunlight can damage a tree is surprising, as many are aware that trees require a much larger amount of sunlight to flourish than standard plants. However, just like humans can get sunburn on their skin after spending too much time unprotected in direct sunlight, trees are also in danger as well.
Unfortunately, while sunburn on humans typically goes away after a few days and is little more than an annoyance, sunscald can kill a tree if it is left to become serious enough. Residents are advised to regularly check their trees for darkened patches of bark resting near a fissure, as this is the most common symptom of severe sunscald.
Residents who are interested in learning more about how to protect their trees from the dangers of sunscald or who are in need of other tree services in Chesapeake are encouraged to call Tarzan Tree Service at 757-204-1390 or visit them online at http://www.tarzantreevb.com for more information.
