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.

Trees are normally at risk whenever the vascular system has been exposed to the elements. This can be caused from lawn equipment like weedeaters and lawnmowers or even buy your tree service company right after they prune the trees and expose the inner vascular system.
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 oakwilt 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 fungus. This is a very deadly and contagious disease for your plantation and normally is referred to in the arbor care society as treat cancer.

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.

This disease operates in several different ways and it’s important that you contract an arbor care company Fort Worth or your local city to be able to properly diagnose if this is the disease that’s operating on your tree system. Oakwilt can also be confused with a lack of nutrients in the ground causing the tree to stress and look dry or brown with foliage out of season. A quick test at a local laboratory should be able to determine if oak wilt is present or depending on the experience of the arborist that is assisting you will be able to diagnose.
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 transmitted through a sap eating beetle whenever the trees vascular system is exposed to the elements. This can be caused by lawn equipment or improper pruning techniques that will cause the tree to be exposed for long durations of time.   This beetle will lay its eggs directly into the open wound and incubate until they hatch. The fungi that these beetles produce will cause the tree to get the disease.
The down side to oak wilt victims is that oak trees are extremely social and live normally within motts or groups. That means they live in bunches and normally have intertwining root systems that will cause all your plantation to get sick and catch the disease.

Bacterial scorch disease – can be caused because of several conditions.

1. The main reason why is that the soil does not have the proper irrigation and moisture is not adequate. 
2. Water is evaporated to quickly to be absorbed by the tree claimant conditions. 
3. The trees root system has been invaded by disease not allowing the tree to absorb water through the vascular system this is a condition called XYLEM. 
The diagnosing of bacterial leaf scorch disease is not the easiest disease to diagnose. This disease can be confused with so many other symptoms that other diseases produce. More than likely samples at a lab that will have to be analyzed to get the proper diagnosis.
The diseases transmitted by Beatles and insects that contaminate the bottom wall of their body and land on unaffected plant or Open wound area of the tree.

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.

A. Trees are suspending in growth and do not have normal growth patterns.
B. Leaves start to foliage out of season and turn brown or yellow.
C. Root system appears dark or black in color and unhealthy. 
D. Branches or limbs start to get frail and dry up. 
E. There’s very little to no growth spurts during the Spring bloom time. 
F. When inspecting the tree the outer core of the roots are peeling off where you can see the vascular system exposed to the soil.
These are all common symptoms of root rot even though root rot normally affects mostly plants and crops it can also at times affect trees as well.
Reason for the root rot disease;
A. Fungi operating in the root system.
B. Not enough irrigation  on frequencies.
C. Root system exposed to the elements especially during the hot summer months or cold frigid winter days.
E. Too much pesticides have been administered to the tree and damaging the vital organs of the root system.
Whenever trying to diagnose root rot it’s imperative to keep these two brackets above in mind. Best thing to do is to call a licensed professional that has the knowledge and certified by the Arbor Care Association. They will be able to determine first of all if you do actually have root rot on your trees. Second and most importantly the type of fungi that is operating in your root system this is vital to determining what type of fungicide shall be administered for proper treatment.

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.

If you start to notice hollow areas in your trees it’s time to call an arborist immediately seeing that a colony of insects could be harboring in your trees vascular system.
Carpenter ants are one of the leading destructors of trees in North Texas making their habitat straight on the trees base of the trunk and causing severe damage to the tree. This can be treated fairly easy with a the pesticide and the cavity can be filled in with an fungicide clay.
Other insects like boars present a separate and more dangerous complex challenge. Boars drill individual holes straight into the trees vascular system and can kill a tree within a season. Normally a pesticide can cure your tree with a couple of treatments or injections.
The best way to prevent insects from harboring on your tree is to contract a trained professional with a TDA license by the Texas department of agriculture. This certified professional is normally – in most cases, either in the pest control industry or a trained arborist that’s certified by the TDA. They will identify what insects are harboring on your trees.

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

 

Spraying treatment

Spraying 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.

Deep root feeding

Deep root feeding

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!

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………
