If your tree stopped producing leaves years ago, bark is missing and raccoons are living rent free in the trunk, more than likely your tree is near the end of its life cycle. The combination of these structural deficiencies mixed with fruiting bodies(fungus) near the root collar, extensive wood pecker damage and large cracks along the main trunk indicate it’s probably time to pull the plug. Any one of these structural defects doesn’t necessarily mandate tree removal, but a combination can prove hazardous without a call to action. The urban forest is filled with targets ranging from parked cars, to picnic areas, to play grounds and houses.  Although it might be sad to remove what was once the perfect shade tree or privacy barrier, remember that all trees eventually come to the end of their life cycle. Waiting until the last minute might be too late, as the more hazardous your tree becomes the more challenging and dangerous it will be to remove.   If you’ve noticed any of these defects in your tree it’s time to call a local certified arborist.
