Drought/Insects have now claimed more than 12 million trees
California in it's historic drought has definitely taken its toll on not only "us" the consumers of water, but has definitely effected our beloved trees. Lingering drought, rising temperatures and outbreaks of tree-killing pests such as bark beetles have spurred an increase in widespread tree mortality. With that being said, it is important for you the homeowner to recognize the effects and the toll it is taking on your trees.
The biggest risk a homeowner can face is public branch-dropping hazards, or trees such as the California sycamore and the coast live oak have started to succumb to the killer beetle/drought creating a fire risk in the form of dead, dry tinder.
We all need to be cognizant of our surroundings and make sure that we are taking the time to schedule a skilled arborist to come to your property to make sure that your trees are not only safe, if in the reach of the public, but are also healthy and not at risk of dying.
