How to tell if a tree is dying and what to in order to save it

The inside of the tree – to check the inside of the tree, you need a knife and scratch the bark slightly. Thus, if it is green, it means it is alive, but if it has a brownish color, the tree has dried up and, unfortunately, there is no cure for it;

The branches – if they are still flexible, you have nothing to worry about, but if they crack fast and the noise is empty, this indicates that the tree is wilted. Also, if the branches of a tree are dry, get rid of them as quickly as possible because this will help the tree recover rapidly;

Spots on the bark – one of the most obvious signs that shows you that a tree is dead, is represented by the orange stains that appear on its bark. They indicate an infection of a fungus that will spread across the tree if you do not take action;

Ants – these are definitely a negative sign. So if you notice ants  at the base of a tree, it means that it is going through a decomposition process. Also, mushrooms at the base are another sign that the tree is not healthy
