Narrow branch angles cause structural problems in wind storms as the tree ages. Closely observe the tree's trunk. Problem areas are easily recognizable. Check for signs of cuts, scrapes or recent pruning. A wound that is more than a quarter of the trunk's circumfer ence is too large and can affect the tree's future health. Look for other flaws. Check for areas that are discolored, sunken or swollen. This indi cates problems beneath the bark. For borer damage, check for small circular holes in the bark. Severe frost cracks that cause permanent damage can result from shallow cracks in a young tree's bark.

Box 529 610-488-1025 ShiDoensburq The general size of the tree can be an accurate indication of quality. Measure the trunk diameter at six inches above ground level. Then measure the size of the root ball. This helps deter mine an estimate on how tall the tree should be in the nurs ery. The size of the root ball should be roughly proportional to the crown, or the area of branches spread on the tree. If the root ball is too small, it may not have enough roots to successfully reestablish the tree at your home. A trunk diameter of 1 1/2 inches translate to a tree between 9- and 13- feet tall. The root ball should be at least 20 inches in diameter. For a trunk diameter of two inch es, a tree should be between 13- and 15- feet tall. The root ball should be at least 24 inches in diameter. Lastly, a 3-inch trunk,, diameter should be found on a tree,; between 14- and 16-, feet tall. The root balk, should be at least 32 inches in diameter. Lastly, feel the sur face of the root ball on trees that have been balled and burlapped. The roptball should be firm and\olid. Check for pruned roots and girdling roots. These are roots that wrap around the lower trunk. Girdling roots are often found about half an inch below the soil line. Once you buy and plant your tree, keep the root system moist all spring and sum mer.
