Diagnosing Hypoxylon Canker Tree Disease

Diagnostic evaluation is rapidly conducted by a certified arborist and a diagnosis report is completed upon examination of the tree in question and investigation of the outdoor environment. Thinning foliage, reduced growth, and broken twigs are symptoms of fungal infection. Crusty, peeling bark and discolored inner wood further confirm hypoxylon canker presence. Compacted soil and ground areas with poor drainage inhibit root growth and weaken the tree. The Fort Worth certified arborist studies the tree evaluation report and determines the immediate treatment required and customizes the continual maintenance necessary to safeguard the trees and residence.
