Proper mulching can help increase the vitality of your tree along with an application of microelements essential for the tree. http://www.treedictionary.com/DICT2003/M/mulch.html
You lack of correct mulching can cause problems in the rhizosphere. The thought is written here: http://www.treedictionary.com/DICT2003/shigo/RHIZO.html
Trees, young can self wound themselves and some proper corrective pruning can help. http://www.treedictionary.com/DICT2003/tree_pruning/why/young.html
If you increase the health of the tree by the latter the chances to have these secondary organisms is low.
