HYPOXYLON CANKER – is a fungus that can affect mostly any hardwood or oak trees. The disease is common in Texas and is found in urban areas in North Texas as well. Healthy trees are normally not affected by the deadly fungus that Hypoxylon Canker produces.
Dutch Elms disease
The fungus can not travel by air or water to infect brand-new trees but rather is lugged by beetles or transmitted through implanted (connected) roots. The bark beetles accountable for transmission include the native elm bark beetle, the smaller European elm bark beetle and the grouped elm bark beetle .
Adult female of all three types of elm bark beetle lay eggs under the bark of just recently dead or dying trees, or in fire wood or logs with strongly attached bark. If DED is the reason of the trees decrease or death, the fungal microorganism will certainly be present in the wood. The DED fungi creates sticky spores within passages as well as galleries developed by the bark beetles. When the brand-new beetles emerge from infected elms, they lug spores of the fungus on and in their physical bodies.
As soon as in the trees’ vascular system, the fungal spores go up the tree with the flow of water or make a thread-like development called mycelium that increases flow towards the origin system. In some trees, the fungi is typically qualified of getting to the root system within the initial season and can infect adjacent elm trees via implanted origin systems.
In response to the fungus, the tree makes plug-like frameworks called tyloses in the water cells of the tree’s vascular system in an effort to quit fungal motion throughout the tree. Vulnerable trees do not generate tyloses rapidly sufficient to block the fungus. Rather this improperly timed defense response finishes up adding to shrivel and decline within the cover. The brownish streaking of the sapwood that can be seen in some species when the bark is peeled back is due to a combination of the gummed up and also damaged vascular system.
Deadly Oak Wilt – is common in North Texas and has been plaguing Texas residents for decades. This is a highly contagious disease that affects Oak trees.
Bacterial scorch disease – can be caused because of several conditions.
Root rot – is a fungi that grows in the root system of plants and trees. Mostly uncommon in North Texas but a few cases have been reported in trees in the last decade. Normally the symptoms associated with the roots rotting are the following.
Insect Infestation – can affect all your plantation to include trees plants and shrubberies. You can purchase at your local hardware store an anti-insect repellent that works fairly well. In some severe cases insect infestation can cause serious damage to your tree system.
Important information on diagnosis and treatment
There are several ways of combating tree disease after a diagnosis has been determine. Arborist USA your complete arbor care Fort Worth company has three main treatment platforms in which we operate.
1. Spring through the foliage of the leaf system.
2. Systemic deep root feeding.
3. Tree injections.
All three are extremely helpful in combating disease on your shrubs or trees.
In specific isolated situations depending on the disease we also might take a different approach. Once again all of this depends on the diagnosis of our labs for advanced disease and or the diagnosis of the actual tree doctor that is helping you with your sick trees. We also offer a variety of organic treatments that are a choice for many customers. The only downside to organic treatments is the length of time that it takes for your plantation to recover from the disease.
In some cases organic treatments will not be recommended due to the severity of the disease and how it will affect your trees overall health compared to the amount of time it would take to treat with organic applications. In any case organic or synthetic we are confident that they will have a high success rate in retrieving your trees over all health. One important key to keep in mind whenever applying any type of treatment; you will not be able to significantly notice a difference on your trees health until the next bloom season.
In most cases our on site arborist should be able to diagnose your trees that same day. Although we will encounter some diseases that are more advanced to require a laboratory to get a true diagnosis so proper treatment can be administered.
3 Great platforms for your sick tree’s treatment
There are two main ways that trees feed themselves and absorb nutrients. First the main point of entry into a trees vascular system is through the root system. This is the fastest way to treat disease and help the tree recover back in adequate time for it’s next bloom season.
In some cases it is not recommended to treat any type of pesticide, organic treatments or synthetics through the root system whenever there lies the problem in that area. In this case we would highly recommend going through the other entry point which is the leaves on the tree.
This is a great way for a tree or shrub to absorb the nutrients needed or the treatment that is necessary to combat the disease that is stressing your trees health. Spraying is a great application that will be applied either through liquid or if dealing with insects could be a fog.
A tree can be treated within a matter of minutes and other applications can be done as scheduled depending on the severity of the disease.
The international society of arboriculture identifies this technique as a lawn care application and not an arbor care treatment. The importance though of contracting an arborist is vital! How would you know what nutrients your soil is lacking? And most importantly how would you know how to mix pesticides with the nutrients then injected into your soil? Most people DON’T have access to professional grade and safe pesticides!
Arborist USA takes all the guesswork out of the simple lawn care technique. By administering a soil test to see what nutrients are lacking and causing your tree disease or they are simply being stressed because of a lack of nutrients in the soil.
Once the arborist determines what nutrients either nitrogen, copper, iron, phosphate, just to name a few that are lacking, they would be able to diagnose what is the proper treatment for your sick trees. Many times trees gather disease simply because of a lack of magnesium which is a very simple injection into the ground and is extremely affordable.
In other instances you might need depending if there is an insect Infestation or true tree disease its necessary to apply different types of additives like pesticides into your systemic deep-root feeding injections.
In any case the best way to a trees vascular system is going to be through with root system. This is one of the best ways of combatting disease and putting back the nutrients that your trees are lacking so that they can thrive once again!
Tree injections are a sure way to combat disease and eradicate it in a Quick fashion!
Though not always recommended especially on young trees under four years old tree injections are highly recommended for almost all diseases. Being able to combat which ever disease or insect infestation is operating on your trees vascular system immediately.
Tree injection simply work! They get into the vascular system and travel down the veins of the tree and eliminating disease and bring the tree back to its full potential within the matter of a few treatments.
Although not one of your least expensive alternatives but when combined with either SYSTEMATIC DEEP ROOT FEED or spraying this can be the very best way to treat tree disease on your plantation.

The woodlands of East Texas are drawing in a range of invasive bugs. Laurel wilt, brought by the red bay ambrosia beetle, was recently encountered in Hardin and also Jasper counties.
Also the emerald ash borer, discovered in 2014 in northern Louisiana, is knocking on the door, otherwise already here. Another insect from Asia, the black branch borer, has been in Texas at the very least since mid‐1980s, yet the harm it purposes is merely currently becoming visible.The black branch borer, with the taxonomic name Xylosandrus compactus, is a little ambrosia beetle that is hardly 1/16 inch long.
It ties itself right into the slim branches of over 220 trees and hedges, consisting of southern magnolia, grape, sweet pair, pecan, dogwood, water oak, red maple, redbud, grape and numerous various other plants. Apparently healthy and balanced trees are effected by this insect. The initial proof of an invasion is a condition called “flagging,” that was researched by the Forestry association; Read more………
