In this service page, we will talk to you about diseases that are common among trees in the city. If you want to learn more, please read on.

Thousand Cankers Disease

Black walnut trees are the most vulnerable to the disease called Thousand Canker Disease. This disease is a result of a fungal infection from a carrier insect. TCD is highly contagious, which is why it should be treated right away before the rest of the healthy trees in your yard gets impacted. 

One way to prevent the disease from spreading is to avoid transporting wood from one place to another. If you can, use firewood from your local area and don’t store them near your home. 

Sudden Oak Death

Also known as Ebola for trees, Sudden Oak Death is a highly fatal disease for trees. 

It is contagious and can be very dangerous for trees, thus the name. If left unaddressed, it can kill several trees with its infection. 

However, keep in mind that lesions and leaking sap are not always clear indicators of a tree suffering from this disease. This is the reason why it requires a professional to diagnose whether a tree is in danger of these deadly diseases. 

If your tree is showing signs of Sudden Oak Death disease, don’t wait another day and give us a call. 

What is Anthracnose?

Another prevalent disease among trees and shrubs in the region is Anthracnose. 

It is a disease caused by a fungus, which is common among trees. While it can be less fatal than other conditions, it can significantly impact the tree’s health, making it more vulnerable to other illnesses and death. 

A tree infected by Anthracnose typically has irregularly-shaped blotches on its leaf veins. If you are unsure whether your tree has Anthracnose disease or not, call us, and we will evaluate your tree immediately. 

Armillaria Root Rot

Armillaria Root Rot can kill hundreds of species of trees, if untreated. It is a common disease among trees in the region, which is characterized by light-colored mushrooms at the base of a tree. You might have seen it before, but you never realized it was a disease until now. 

This disease is like a parasite that robs the tree of nutrients and moisture. The tree will then be left weak and damaged and susceptible to other diseases. If not addressed, the tree will face its death. 

If your tree is under this circumstance, please call us right away for urgent assistance. Our expert team is here to help and restore the luster of your tree.
