Oak Gall Treatment in Fort Worth, TX.

Also known as oak apples, oak galls are the common name for odd, large round growths that are up to two inches in diameter and are found on a variety of oak trees prevalent throughout Fort Worth. These unsightly formations range in color from yellowish shades to brownish-reds and typically appear in early spring. Affected trees will exhibit branches falling, premature defoliation and appear scorched. The galls usually do not cause permanent damage to the tree if early treatment is administered; however, the advanced infestation will ultimately destroy the oak. Contact an experienced tree company promptly when your oak tree has manifested galls or the above-stated symptoms or it is exhibiting signs of a sick tree.

Diagnosing Oak Gall

The large galls occur when non-stinging wasps lay their eggs on the invaded tree's branches, twigs or foliage. These wasps inject a hormone into the tree's tissue that forms the gall and protects the wasp larvae. Oak trees that are stressed, weak, wounded or in declining health are vulnerable to infestation by these gall-forming wasps. The insects overwinter in ground debris. Request a tree health assessment by a certified arborist. The tree and habitat grounds will be closely inspected and a definitive diagnosis report will be provided. The determined treatment will be administered by an arborist that treats sick trees and a one year warranty is provided with the treatment.

Treatment Of Oak Gall

Immediate removal and destruction of severely affected trees and all ground debris must be done by a professional tree removal company. Pruning of gall-infested branches by a tree pruning service will prevent the continued spread of the insects. The galls must be immediately crushed or burned and discarded immediately. Birds are predators of these destructive insects and hanging bird feeders will aid in reducing the insect problem. Insecticide applications are successful when scheduled and applied by a tree care specialist. Maintaining the health of your trees with deep root fertilization is the best way to prevent wasp invasion and oak gall formation. The highly-trained tree expert injects under pressure the specific liquid nutrients the tree needs directly into its root zone.
