We all know that the world is round, right? Even young kids know that. And as such, the season changes depending on what part of the world you are in. All seasons have their pros and cons and you’d likely complain about it when you’re experiencing it and missing it once the season changes. Well, humans can be so fickle sometimes and it is a normal part of human nature. But have we tried looking past our own interests and start looking at the things around us. For instance, trees are living things too that are affected by the environment in as much as we are.
Summer, in particular, is a very hard time for them too. The heat can be too much and when not taken care of properly, it can take its toll to a tree that is out there in the open with nothing to shield it from the scorching heat of the sun. Most trees grow on their own, with no owners to care for them, water them, and ensure they can survive summer in one piece. The heat can cause its leaves to wilt and make it prone to infestation from tree parasites. They may need to get treatment from most diseases affecting trees but who will do it for them?
Some conditions do not necessarily need treatment because they go away on their own like the common cold and flu that humans get once in a while. Even trees in homes with owners to take care of them still suffer from the severe heat of the summer sun. Droughts can even worsen the situation especially that global warming is severely impacting natural weather systems and making them more intense than before. Trees don’t stand a chance given they are more exposed to the elements than us humans.
You may think that trees grow forever until they are intentionally cut down but they actually aren’t invincible to the elements. They can die early because of the skyrocketing temperature but do they really need to perish when you can do something about it? Trees in the wild may struggle a lot and there is little (to nothing) you can do about it but there is something you can do about the trees in your yard and even in your neighborhood. You can spare a few minutes of your day watering them so they can cope with the sweltering heat all day long. They’re not too hard to do and are often common gardening techniques observed by many. If the situation can’t be salvaged anymore and the tree is gone beyond help, then better have it removed, stump and all, by professionals like http://www.allcleartree.com/stump-removal and plant a new one in its wake.
