Common Diseases and Pests
There are early symptoms that trees reveal when they have been infested by insects or infected by a disease:
- Has your tree lost its thick canopy?
- Are its leaves prematurely dropping?
- Does the tree have an overall sickly and weak appearance?
Many people find that their trees experience some of the following common tree problems:
- INSECT INFESTATION
Aphids, webworms and spider mites overtake a tree and landscape rapidly.
- OAK WILT
Red oak trees and numerous oak varieties are targeted by this destructive, quick-spreading fungal pathogen.
- POWDERY MILDEW
This fungus spreads rapidly throughout the entire outdoor environment and covers leaves with white flour-like spots.
- WOOD BORER INSECTS
Cottonwood borer, Emerald ash borer, and Clearwing moths all invade the core wood and cause serious damage to the tree.
Damages to the tree weaken the tree’s immunity and prevent the tree from being able to resist infectious diseases. Tree wounds are caused by numerous factors. Shovels can damage tree roots when planting accent plants around the tree’s baseline. Weed trimmers may cause abrasions to the tree’s bark. High winds, hail, and storms stress the tree. A wounded tree is susceptible to many destructive pathogens including:
- SUDDEN OAK DEATH
High winds and rainstorms disperse this lethal water mold pathogen that destroys oak trees quickly.

This bacterial disease destroys leaves and causes them to appear dried, brittle and burned.
Root systems are rotted by this fungal disease that thrives in moist soil due to inadequate soil drainage.
- DUTCH ELM DISEASE
This vascular pathogen halts the tree’s ability to supply nutrients throughout its system and often kills an elm tree in less than two months.
Wind and rain spread this fungal pathogen rapidly, targeting Leyland cypress and other fir varieties.
Unsightly brown blotches and spots or leaves result from invasion by this lethal fungal pathogen.
- BACTERIAL SLIME FLUX
Oozing foul-smelling liquid from tree wounds are caused by this bacterial pathogen.
- HYPOXYLON CANKER
Destroying oak trees at an alarming rate, this deadly fungal disease targets trees that have been wounded or stressed.
