After you have a brand new landscape installed, you know that you have to put in a certain amount of landscape maintenance to keep it healthy and beautiful. You water your landscape, deadhead flowers, prune trees, and rake leaves. Another important part of maintaining a landscape is keeping an eye out for infestations. The moment you see a tree, shrub, flower, or other plant that looks unhealthy, it’s important to have a professional come to treat it right away. An untended infestation could spread, killing the plant and spreading to others. This not only creates a bigger and more expensive problem to fix, but it can also be dangerous. A dead tree is unstable, and dead branches have a chance of falling on those passing by underneath the tree. To prevent the damage of infestation, make sure you look out for these warning signs.
