Chlorosis Treatment in Arlington, TX.

Chlorosis is a serious condition affecting the leaves of trees and plants and results from the deprivation of chlorophyll, which is the chemical compound necessary for healthy leaves to maintain a rich green color. Chlorophyll enables the tree to absorb sunlight (a process known as photosynthesis) in order for the tree to supply the necessary nutrients and water throughout its vascular system and maintain its health and vitality. Without proper chlorophyll, the leaves of affected trees and plants begin losing their green color and can become yellow, exhibit green veins with yellowing around them or turn pale whitish-yellow in severe cases. Many trees in Arlington and the surrounding cities exhibit symptoms of chlorosis, and certified arborists are frequently addressing this problem in residential neighborhoods. Iron chlorosis is the most common form of chlorosis disease and results from soil having a high alkalinity level, which means the soil tests as having a PH level higher than 7.0. Oak trees, maples and many other popular tree varieties within the DFW metroplex are highly susceptible to iron chlorosis. Left untreated, chlorosis frequently leads to the eventual death of the affected tree. Contact a tree care specialist immediately when leaves begin losing their green color and receive a definitive diagnosis to ensure your valuable tree survives this destructive affliction.
