Common Diseases and Pests

Trees reveal indications of failing health and insect infestation. Are you observing your tree has lost its fullness or is losing a lot of its leaves? Does the tree seem to be weak and appears to be generally unhealthy? Below are some very common issues that many people encounter with their trees:


    • Oak Wilt
      Oak wilt fungus quickly invades Red oak trees and the many popular oak varieties in Texas.
    • Powdery Mildew
      White, dusty spots on leaves and plants are powdery mildew fungus and spread quickly.
    • Chlorosis
      Are the leaves yellow and pale? Nutrient deficiency depletes chlorophyll which is what makes the leaves green. High alkaline iron deficient soil is a major cause of chlorosis.
    • Insect Pests
      Spider mites, aphids, and wood borers reproduce rapidly and quickly overtake your landscape.
    • Root Rot
      Compacted soil or excess soil moisture can cause decaying roots.
    • Leaf Spot
      Black spots on leaves are caused by many fungal and bacterial pathogens.

    Wounds to the tree can be caused by many factors. Extreme weather such as lightning, rainstorms or hail may damage the tree. Lawn care and weed trimmers or shovels can cause unintended wounds. Wounds on the tree’s trunk and branches make the tree vulnerable to numerous pathogens such as the following:

    • Bacterial Slime Flux
      Wounds enable this bacterial pathogen to invade the tree.
    • Bacterial Leaf Scorch
      Leaves that appear as if they’ve been burned have been damaged by this destructive bacterial disease.
    • Brown Rot
      Brown Rot fungal pathogens target pit-centered fruit trees and cause the roots to decay from excess moisture.
    • Seiridium Canker
      Cypress trees that have suffered stress or wounds are targeted by this destructive pathogen.
    • Fire Blight
      Trees that produce pit-centered fruits are invaded by this fungal disease that causes leaves and shoots tips to turn black or curl.
    • Hypoxylon Canker
      This serious fungal pathogen thrives in hot summer weather and targets oak trees excessively.
    • Anthracnose
      Anthracnose is a deadly fungal pathogen that causes brown spots on leaves, ultimately killing them.
    • Sudden Oak Death
      This water mold pathogen spreads quickly by wind and rain and can kill oak trees rapidly.
    • Phytophthora
      Phytophthora causes root rot due to poor soil drainage, enabling this water-loving fungal pathogen to destroy the root structure.
