HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE DISEASES THAT YOU WILL ENCOUNTER IN NORTH TEXAS
Tree sick disease can include: Oak Wilt, is one of the leading diseases for killing Oaks in Texas! It is almost to the point of a pandemic especially in central Texas From San Antonio to Dallas.
Tree service Dallas has the expeiriance to identify all types of tree disease operating on your property.
This disease has claimed the lives of more trees than any other disease in the history of America. Arbor care services are working around the clock to prevent the spread of Oak Wilt in your Oak trees. A report done by the international Society of Arbor care in 2012 reported that this disease killed well over 100,000 trees in the past decade.
The way the disease works is; it breaks down the trees ability to conduct water. This will result in oak trees simply drying out and not being able to sustain themselves during the hot summer months. Another way to say it is the tree is severely dehydrated and not able to process moisture.
The international Society of arboriculture declared the disease a pathogen that has to be controlled by all means possible. It is highly contagious, one tree can contaminate one acre of trees within one year. Once a tree has advanced state of Oak Wilt it is virtually almost impossible to restore it.
For this reason it's imperative that you get a pre-diagnosis of your trees periodically throughout the year. Three species of oaks that are hardest hit by this disease is red Oak, White Oak, and Live Oak which accounts for at least 3/4 of the tree population in Texas.
HOW IS OAK WILT SPREAD:
The spread of Oak Wilt in the Red Oak species is very different from Live Oak or White Oak. Red Oak is affected by Oak Wilt normally when mankind moves wood from one area to another and the logs themselves are infected with Oak Wilt.
Another form of the disease spreading is through sap feeding Beatles, that normally land on the tree after it has been trimmed and the tree is still in its healing process.
The open wounds that are left from the trimming exposes the inner part of the tree, this is the area where the sap eating Beatles will deposit their eggs, creating an infestation of Oak Wilt.
LIVE AND WHITE OAK:
When we start to investigate the way Oak Wilt is spread out through Live Oak and also White Oak trees it's much different. Keep in consideration that Live Oak's living dance groups called Motts and are very social trees.
The closer tightknit together they are the more their roots entangle. Its not uncommon to see 50 Live Oak trees bunched up together and their root system is completely united. This is a great thing for the longevity of the trees but a bad thing whenever one of them gets contaminated with Oak Wilt. It makes it real easy for the disease to be transmitted from one Oak tree to another simultaneously. At this point you must hire a tree arborist firm so the disease can be treated.
You can tell a lot from a tree by its leafs, this is the best way for tree doctors to be able to tell if your tree has any problems with disease. A healthy tree in season will have nice lush lime green to dark green leafs. A tree that is sickening or contaminated or infected with Oak Wilt will have the following indicators. Leafs turning brown out of season.
1.On a Live Oak you will have the leaves start to turn brown from the outside and start to weather, in words. Until the whole leaf system is completely brown and no green affect is on the leafs themselves. It almost looks like the tree is in its autumn, but normally during another season like spring. This is a great indication that the tree is dying from some type of a disease or is sick.
2. The same thing goes with White Oak and Red Oak they both have the same affects to their leaf system. With Live Oak the leaves start to turn a reddish-brown from the veiny part of the leaf itself out wards.The same affect happens with White Oak.
The form of fungi in Oak Wilt starts to dictate the tree from the inside out. This is a poison that will start to rot away areas of the tree bark and you will see a whitish color in a circular motion start to form in spots.
At times you won't see spotting, but maybe one huge spot start to form and as the fungi starts to travel through the bark you will see multiple spots. It will eventually kill the tree in a matter of months.
