Which hinders the tree from absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere influencing the trees ability to release oxygen back into the air. Not good for us humans! Some other symptoms the trees can suffer from is compacted roots, suffocating them due to lack of oxygen, changes is chemical composation, and too much water can create mineral toxities. This can lead to root rot.
