What Are The Common Types Of Tree Diseases In Texas?
Although there are several tree kinds of diseases in Texas, the most prevalent one is Oak wilt.
Oak wilt is a type of Oaks-specific disease caused by a fungus called Bretiziella fagacearum. The fungus is similar to yeast and it is transmitted along the vascular system in the tree sap. The disease gradually spreads through root grafts between the surrounding trees. The disease can also be transmitted by insects.
The potential damage or severity of Oak wilt infection largely depends on the species of your oak tree. While white oaks can survive for about 5 years after being affected, red oaks are more vulnerable and may die once affected.
What Are The Common Symptoms Of Oak Wilt?
The Oak wilt exhibits different symptoms as the disease progresses. At the early stage of infection, you will start noticing signs, including:
- Leaf discoloration
As the disease advances, the limbs will die off. You may also notice fungal mats developing under the bark, pushing the bark out and causing some cracks. If left untreated, the affected tree will die in no time. Not only that, the affected tree can transmit the disease to the surrounding trees, hereby wrecking greater havoc on your valuable assets.
