Common Tree Diseases in North Texas.


Root Rot is not common in North Texas but does occur in some cases. Normally shaded trees fall victim to this Disease. The main cause is overwatering or fungi that penetrate open wounds within the root system and starts the decay the roots until the tree falls over. In most cases, if the tree is not too damaged it can be salvaged with simple tree injections or deep root fertilization injections.


Leaf scorch is a common disease in North Texas and can be caused by several different factors. Underwater, tree plantation shock, nutrient deficiency, drought, or gardening injuries. Treatment after diagnosis is simple, fertilization of the soil or tree injection to put back the nutrients into the tree. Should see results within a matter of weeks from treatment from a certified arborist.


Oak Wilt is very common to Central and North Texas. This disease has taken the lives of more trees than any other disease in Texas history. Transmission is through a sap eating beetle that penetrates open wounds and lays its eggs causing disease. Treatment is not always simple depending on what stage the diseases is in. A tree can combat this disease through tree injections using pesticides with nutrients plus soil injections. Should see results in the next spring season.


One of the many Fungi’s that attack North Texas trees is a simple breed of mushrooms that grow at the base of the tree. If the tree has any exposed vascular system where the bark is missing the fungi will penetrate causing severe damage to the trees overall health. This is easily combatted through simple tree injections and the removing of the fungi physically. Systemic deep root feed in the soil is also a great way to treat the disease.
