River Birch Tree Has Hole And Dark Areas On Trunk

Question From: R. vista - LOUISIANA
Q: Hi Miss Nancy, what seems to be the problem of our River Birch tree, has hole mark on the bark and some dark areas on the trunk ??We appreciate you time and your help....


Rommie I recommend you do what I would do if that were my tree. I am not a tree doctor so I don't diagnose or treat trees. They are too precious to loose. And often trees show signs of disease, damage or stress that mask other issues. So I recommend you have a certified arborist, a trained tree doctor do an onsite inspection of your tree. It's not all that expensive and a lot cheaper than buying a replacement. Happy Yardening, Nancy
