Can I Save a Tree with Termite Damage ?
While most termite species feed on dead wood, there are a few species that feed on live plants and trees. These termites weaken the limbs of the trees, which can cause heavy branches to break during storms. Eventually, the termite damage will be too extensive for the tree to survive.
A tree¡¯s ability to survive a termite infestation depends on how soon it is treated and the extent of the infestation. If an infestation is noticed and treated early, the tree is likely to survive. If the tree is close to your home, contact an arborist to evaluate the tree¡¯s health and determine if it may fall or break a limb that could damage your house.
