In some instances, you can see the hollowness through a hole or opening on the side of the tree. In other cases, if you tap on the tree, you can hear its hollowness.

2. Absence of Leaves
A tree that is devoid of leaves throughout the year may be cause for concern. Although no leaves could be a sign of budding issues, it is also a symptom for a diseased tree. Trees use photosynthesis through leaves to produce "food" for itself. Therefore, if a tree doesn't grow leaves, it can't feed and grow. And a tree that can't grow is most likely dead, or in the process of dying.
3. Branches That Are Dead
Dead branches are also considered signs of a diseased tree. Often, they go hand-in-hand with fungus accumulation on the foundation of your trees. If a diseased branch falls within a close enough proximity to a healthy tree, the disease can easily spread from one tree to the other. Mid-State Tree Service can easily assess the health of your tree by examining the dead branches and determining whether or not tree removal is necessary.

Remove a tiny bit of bark from the trunk of your tree. If you notice anything that seems dehydrated and brownish, then there is a strong chance that the tree may be dead. However, if you notice that the residue appears greenish at all, this is a sign that the tree is not dead.
