Tree Inspection for root or wood decay

JL Tree Service Inc arborists can inspect our customers trees and determine possible decay in the root system or in the wood and give an overall recommendation on maintenance or tree removal if necessary. ┬áSometimes its easy to discover decay when fungi or fruiting bodies are growing on the decay – see pictures below. This is a obvious fruiting body fungi mushroom that has grown on the root system of this Red Oak. ┬áMany times, the mushrooms or fungus will grow in the ground around the trunk or even out further in the root system. This shows an apparent sign of root rot or decay and the tree should be evaluated for condition and possible tree service.
