Trees play a very important role in our lives. Apart from providing you with shade from the hot sun, they also prevent erosion and enrich the soil that your tree is planted in. There is nothing that is more “statelier” than the beauty of a mature tree that has been strategically positioned in a yard. This will make your property look more graceful and pricey.
There are many different species of trees in the world and each of them thrives best under certain conditions and environments. Such conditions include climate change and also the type of soil in which the trees are planted.
It is important to also note that some species are more susceptible to infestation of pests and attacks by certain diseases than other species of trees are. Proper planning is very essential for planting trees for this very reason. This will save you not only money but undesirable results and a loss of time.

A tulip tree is suitable for you if you don’t mind its height. It grows very fast, about two feet every year, and many experts have recommended this tree for its amazing resistance to pest infestations.
Although the tulip tree is resistant to pest infestations, that doesn’t mean it is not susceptible to attack of bacterial diseases just like any other living thing. The most common disease with this plant is the Verticillium Wilt Disease. It is caused by fungi that are usually borne in common soil. The high effects of drought on tulip trees make the tree more vulnerable to contracting this disease because there aren’t many trees, to begin with.
Once the fungi have damaged a part of the roots, that side of the tree that is nurtured by those roots will die. It is very difficult to notice the damage of the disease early on because the infection mostly affects the roots which are below the ground. The tree can end up with irreparable damage if this disease is not treated in the early stages. A sign that your tulip tree is infected can be the wilted branches on the tree.
