Common Tree Diseases
Hypoxylon Canker - is an ascomycete fungus that negatively affects growth and can eventually lead to the death of the host tree. This is a common species found on oak trees. This disease is common in Texas and is found in urban areas in North Texas. The early symptoms of Hypoxylon Canker is a thinning of the crown, branch start dying and drying. This can also be confused with other diseases operating like oak wilt on your tree system. So it’s imperative to have an arborist diagnose it as soon as possible. It starts to invade the bark system by forming white spores of the fungus. This is a very deadly and contagious disease and normally is referred to as treat cancer.
Dutch Elms Disease - is a serious disease of elms caused by the fungus Ophiostoma Novo-ulmi. It is a type of disease known as vascular wilt because the fungus blocks the vascular (water transport) system, causing the branches to wilt and die. It is spread by elm bark beetles.
Oak Wilt - is a fungal disease affecting oak trees caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fagacearum. Symptoms vary by tree species but generally consist of leaf discoloration, wilt, defoliation, and death. Oak Wilt basically kills the tree from the inside out by not allowing it to retain water and dehydrating the tree to death. The disease is tranmditted through a sap eating beetle whenever the trees vascular system is exposed to the elements.
Insect Infestation - can affect all your trees, plants and shrubs. If you start to notice hollow areas in your trees it’s time to call an arborist immediately. The best way to prevent insects from harboring on your tree is to contract an arbor care professional.
Bacterial Scorch Disease - is a systemic disease caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa, which invades the xylem (water and nutrient conducting tissues) of susceptible trees. It is most commonly seen in the pin, red, shingle, bur, and white oaks, but can also affect elm, oak, sycamore, mulberry, sweetgum, sugar maple, and red maple. Xylem-feeding leafhoppers and spittlebugs spread the bacterium from tree to tree. Tranmdission between trees through root grafts has also been reported. There is no cure for this disease; it is chronic and potentially fatal.
Root Rot - is a condition found in both indoor and outdoor plants, although more common in indoor plants with poor drainage. As the name states, the roots of the plant rot.
