You might notice the trees planted around your home aren’t thriving as they once did.
Trees planted in cities, towns and along roadways tend to live decades shorter than those that grow in forests due to many potential sources of stress to which they can be exposed.
Younger trees tend to be more vulnerable to mechanical bark damage, be it environmental or human-caused, said Gena Lorainne, horticulturist and plants expert at Fantastic Services.
“Some species of trees are also more sensitive to rapid climate change than others,” Lorainne added.
