Is Bald Cypress Tree That Has Ants Dying

Question From: TEXAS
Q: My bald cypress tree has ants near and under bark. The bark is peeling off at trunk. I read that these small ants look for rotted wood. Does this mean my beautiful cypress is dying? There are two other cypress trees close by and their bark is not peeling. I have searched for answers elsewhere and have not been able to find an answer. Thank you.


If you treasure your tree I recommend you have an onsite inspection from a certified arborist - a trained tree doctor. You can find one here:  Blind diagnosis can be deadly. Best Nancy.
