Could water be rotting my tree?

There is a lot of water around this tree and I think the water is hurting the tree.

Yes, water could be causing your tree to rot. Excess water simply aids and speeds up how fast wood rots. Get rid of excess water.

If it is pooling above ground level, than more than likely yes it is harming your tree because not only is the water more than what the tree can use and not remove the unused, but also if the water is pooled it opens the opportunity for things like molds, parasites, or even insect developement to infect it.

Yes, too much of water rottens the roots of plants causing the plant to die, over a period of time.


Answer by  SteveO (147)

Yes, there is a very good chance that too much water is hurting your tree. It is no different than a house plant with too much water, it is going to kill it. You may want to dig a trench away from the tree to see if you can move some of the water away from it.

Yes it is very possible the water is hurting the tree if the tree does not need a lot of water. Try planting a Willow tree near by.
