    Make sure to pay close attention to the planting depth of your trees. This oak had the grade raised around it at some point (see dirt line on trunk), thankfully we were able to catch it and restore the proper depth with an Air Spade before any damage was done. If the tree looks like a telephone pole going into the ground you have a problem, the root flare should be fully visible. 🌲
The most common reason for grade change include: construction projects, incorrect planting practices and excessive mulching.
🌲
The long term effects of incorrect depth can be drastic: girdling roots, trunk decay, root system loss, etc.

    Aspens are a perfect example of how abiotic (non living) disorders funnel into biotic (living) disorders. Usually tree diseases start with tree defects, for instance a deer rubbing it’s antlers on an Aspen trunk produces a “wound” (abiotic) which creates an entrance point for black canker, cryptosphaeria canker, cytosporta canker, hypoxylon canker, or sooty bark canker. The abiotic defect could be large pruning wound, storm damage, frost cracks, wildlife damage, or many more things. Abiotic loads the gun, biotic pulls the trigger.

    Your competition isn't other people. 
Your competition is your proscratination. Your ego. The unhealthy food you're consuming. The knowledge you neglected. The negative behavior your nurturing & your lack of creativity. Compete against that.
