Arizona Trees

Why do trees fall and/or uproot during monsoons? Are there signs you should look for? What can you do differently?

The Palo Verde tree, one of the most commonly planted trees in residential areas is native to Arizona. So why are they uprooting during monsoons? Jessie Byrd with the Native Plant Nursery in Pima County says it’s mostly due to overwatering. Since Palo Verde trees are native to Arizona they are not meant to be watered as frequently as most people do. This makes the trees grow a lot faster, making the wood really weak.

Some other warning signs to look for that can help you catch damage before it happens.

  1. Hole in the trunk

  2. Cracks and/or missing bark

  3. Falling or dead branches

  4. Trunk is leaning

  5. The leaves fall inside out

  6. Branches grow in a tight V shape

If you are unsure if the tree has any of these signs, you should consult a qualified tree expert. Professionals can help you avoid preventable property damage from your trees.
