What Are the Most Common Tree Issues in Naples?

In general, Florida’s warm weather, plentiful sunshine, long growing season, and reliable water supply make it a prime location for plants and trees to thrive. While this usually holds true, these conditions can also encourage the growth of bacteria, fungi, and many kinds of insects which can all attack trees. 

Plant Diseases

  • Lethal Bronzing — This fatal disease of palm trees has arrived in Florida in recent years and is caused by a bacteria-like organism called a phytoplasma. Easily spread by insects that feed on a tree’s sap, it can rapidly travel from tree to tree. Once a tree is infected, it is incurable and the tree must be removed as quickly as possible to prevent insects from feeding on it and carrying it to more trees. The first symptom is usually fruit dropping early, and infected palm trees usually die within a few months.
  • Laurel Wilt — Attacking our beloved redbays, bay laurel, avocados, sassafras, and other members of the Laurel family, this fatal fungus is carried by ambrosia beetles which arrived as an invasive species from China. There is no treatment for Laurel Wilt and affected trees should be removed promptly to avoid the fungus spreading to other vulnerable trees.
  • Citrus Greening — Also known as Huanglongbing or HLB disease, Citrus Greening is another incurable tree disease spread among susceptible trees by insects. In this case, it is spread between citrus trees by the Asian Citrus psyllid. Infected trees generally die within a few years, and while infected, produce bitter, oddly shaped fruits that are unsuitable for eating or for sale — a disaster for our vital citrus industry in Collier County and a disappointment in many yards. 
  • Oak Wilt — Infection patterns and tree death for Oak Wilt are similar to those for Laurel Wilt, except that primarily red oaks and pin oaks are affected. Our famous live oaks are also vulnerable, but they tend to die a little more slowly than the other species.

Insect Pests

In addition to spreading fungal diseases among trees, many insects, especially invasive species without local predators, prey on otherwise diseased, damaged, or weakened trees. 

  • Whiteflies — Several kinds of whiteflies can defoliate trees in Florida, from the ficus whitefly which attacks fig or ficus trees, to rugose whiteflies which attack many kinds of plants and trees. While rarely fatal, whitefly infestations can be sticky and unpleasant, and can make trees and plants less attractive. 
  • Bark Beetles — Several kinds of pine bark beetles can infest trees in Florida. While these, too, rarely cause fatal injuries to trees, they can make a tree weaker and can create opportunities for other, often fatal infections to spread more easily. 
  • Lychee Erinose Mite — A fairly new arrival to Collier County, the lychee erinose mite is too small to see without a microscope, but it can cause severe damage to lychee trees, causing brown blistered leaves, and spoiling nearly all of the fruit on infested trees. While these pests, too, are unlikely to kill a tree, they can spoil a favorite tree’s appearance, limit its fruit production, can spread easily, and can weaken a tree, so it is more susceptible to other hazards.

Severe Weather

No discussion of hazards to trees in Florida would be complete without mentioning hurricanes and tropical storms. Anyone who’s lived in Florida for more than a year or two will almost certainly have experienced at least one storm that has damaged or toppled trees in their area. 

Does the City of Naples Provide Any Assistance in Tree Removal Problems?

Many municipalities across Florida used to require permits for most types of tree removals, even on private property. As of March 2020, however, permits are no longer required to remove trees on private property, as long as the tree is certified to be dangerous by a licensed arborist or landscape architect.

Who Is Responsible For Fallen Tree Removal in Naples?

Current Florida law indicates that, in general, responsibility for fallen trees lies with the owner of the property on which a tree has fallen, regardless of who actually owns the tree in question. The situation can change a little, though, if the tree was damaged, dying, or dead at the time it fell. In that case, particularly if the tree’s owner knew about it and ignored it, the person owning the land where the tree grew is instead responsible for it. Negligent owners may also find that their insurance companies are unwilling to pay out on any claims related to a fallen tree. 

If you’re a homeowner?

Most of the time, you, the homeowner (and your insurance company), is responsible for tree removal and any damages a falling tree may have caused. If the tree was clearly unhealthy, things may be different. If an unhealthy tree owned by your neighbor falls onto your property, your neighbor is generally liable. 

If you’re a renter?

Unless your lease specifies otherwise, you, the tenant, are usually not responsible for fallen tree removal or damage at the property you rent. It’s a good idea, though, to alert your landlord to any trees that appear to be unhealthy or damaged, both on the property where you live, and on neighboring lots. 

If you’re a landlord?

Landlords are normally subject to the same responsibilities as homeowners, even though they don’t generally reside at the properties they rent out. If you are a landlord, you are normally responsible for trees that fall onto any property you own. Regular tree maintenance, especially in preparation for hurricane season, is one way to be a good landlord for your tenants. 

If you’re a neighbor?

In short, if your neighbor’s tree falls onto your property, you’re usually responsible for it if the tree was healthy, but they’re normally responsible for it if it wasn’t. 

How Does the Soil Affect Trees in Naples?

As you’d expect from our coastal Florida location, the soil around Naples is quite sandy. Soil itself is generally made up of three parts, sand which enables soil to drain well, silt (tiny grains of rock) which helps with fertility and keeping it from compacting too much, and clay which holds moisture and nutrients. The thing trees love about sandy soil is that it’s very easy for their roots to make their way through it to find water, nutrients, and room to grow. Unfortunately, the sandier the soil, the less it’s able to actually hold water or nutrients within it, so trees may have to work a little harder to get what they need. Clearly, our soil is good for tree growth, as witnessed by our Naples national champion trees, our Myrtle Oak, and Royal Palm

Does Weather Affect Tree Health in Naples?

Being in the Sunshine State generally means excellent growing conditions for the thousands of tree species that thrive in our climate. Our heat and humidity can, unfortunately, also be optimal conditions for many insects, bacterial, and fungal pests that can damage our trees. In addition, though southwest Florida is hit by major hurricanes less often than some other parts of the state, we are still in a vulnerable position. When that severe weather does roll through, it can cause substantial damage to our beloved trees. Storm surges and heavy rain can oversaturate soil, weakening tree roots’ hold in the soil and making them more vulnerable to toppling in heavy storm winds. 

What If Dead Trees Are Near Power Lines in Naples?

Florida Power and Light (FPL) is responsible for tree maintenance in the vicinity of power lines in Naples and the rest of their service area in Collier County and beyond. They encourage you to follow their Right Tree, Right Place guidance in selecting trees to plant on your property in areas where a mature tree might be near transmission lines. Because tree maintenance is normally performed on a cyclic basis, it’s important to alert the utility to any dead or damaged trees you notice near power lines, so they can be taken care of promptly. To help, FPL offers a convenient form to alert them to problems with trees in utility rights-of-way. 

How Much Does Tree Removal Usually Cost in Naples?

Unless a tree appears to be in imminent danger of falling, many homeowners tend to ignore tree maintenance and removal until it becomes a more complicated, hazardous situation. Many times, this reluctance comes from anticipating a huge expense for tree removal. Fortunately, the average tree removal in Naples ranges from about $450 to about $675 for a standing tree. Trees that have already fallen usually cost well below the average. 

Size and Type of Tree

As you might expect, smaller trees are almost always easier to remove, and so tend to come with lower costs. Some of our favorite local trees can have added complications for removal, such as the wide-spreading canopies of live oaks or the intertwined limbs of ficus of banyans, which can add to the cost of removal. Others such as our many species of palm trees are frequently more simple to remove, and so can reduce overall costs. 

Location and Accessibility

Few lots in Naples neighborhoods lack trees, from the variety of palms that grace the streets of Old Naples to the majestic banyans in many yards. Many of these trees are fairly easy to access, but others come with a host of difficulties. When removing a tree, we must protect adjacent trees as well as homes, garages, swimming pools, other yard and outdoor structures, neighboring homes and lots, landscaping, and many other parts of your property. We always make every effort to avoid damaging your lawn or other parts of your property with any equipment needed to remove a tree, but sometimes the additional effort and labor will add to your costs.

Additional Equipment and Services

Specialized equipment may be needed to remove some trees, either because of their condition, their size, the complexity of removing them, or their location. Many times, homeowners will also request additional work to be done, from log splitting and limb chipping to stump leveling and grinding. Each of these additional pieces of equipment or added services will generally increase the time and labor required to remove your tree, and so, will increase your bottom line.
