What You Need to Know
Some trees actually do bloom later in the summer. So it could be possible that there is nothing wrong with your tree, and instead, it is just a late bloomer. This is common during springs and summers that experience unprecedented or irregular climate changes. Ask your Fishers tree service technician which species are more common to bloom in the mid-to-late summer. If your tree is not a late bloomer, there could be other reasons why it is missing its leaves.
Another reason why trees sometimes do not bloom leaves is due to poor soil conditions. If soil is too heavy, too acidic, or too alkaline, it can affect a tree’s health and the way it grows. Use a soil testing kit to test your soil, and make any necessary adjustments using store-bought soil additives.
A restricted root system is another common reason behind missing leaves. Structural damage from lawn mowing or construction can sometimes impede a root system’s ability to transport water and nutrients to the canopy of the tree. Without sufficient levels of water and nutrition, a tree does not have the energy needed to produce leaves. Pest infestation, tree disease, and nuisance wildlife interference are other common reasons for trees to not bloom.
