Just like any other living thing on the planet a tree is susceptible to sickness and disease. This can come from pests, fungus or bacterial infections that eat away at the branches, roots or leaves. A beautiful growing tree should be well taken care of by a professional that knows what to look for. If you have a tree that seems to be looking worse and you have not changed any of your watering habits you may have a tree that has a fatal disease.

What Causes Trees To Die
This is a great question. When a person has put in the years that it takes to get a fully matured and beautiful tree and you see it start to die you want to know what has gone wrong. One way that a tree can start to die off is from insects that infest a tree and take all the nutrients. It can also be from a fungus that infects the tree or a bacteria infection such as from extreme weather or incorrect pruning. No matter the initial cause, so much damage can be done that the tree will stop growing and begin to die.
What to do with a Dead Tree in your Yard
The hardest part about a tree that has some disease is that it has to be removed. That can be really sad since you have probably come to love the tree and the look that it brings to your home and property. If the tree has been left to die it can become a danger to the other trees around as well as the house itself and other vehicles and people. The tree will become weak and a big gust of wind can easily break some branches off or possibly even tip the whole tree over.
