Many times after a tree has fallen, we found the cause was due to white rot. White rot is hard to detect before a tree falls, but there are some signs to look for.

Taking these small steps may help prevent a full tree removal. Learn more about white rot and how to help diagnose it in hopes of preventing a full tree removal.
