Trees are very resilient to whatever nature brings. Generally, as long as the weather stays consistent they can take care of themselves. However, just like with anything, a little TLC can go a long way. With where your tree is positioned on your property, it might not be getting as many nutrients as it should. It’s still growing, producing new branches, leaves, etc., but it’s not as strong as it could which puts the tree at risk for insects and diseases.
