For an Oak Wilt analysis and estimate call our office or request an estimate online here. Oak wilt is one of the most destructive tree diseases in the United States. Oak Wilt is a fungus, that attacks the vascular system of susceptible trees, disabling the water conducting tissue. All Oaks are susceptible to one degree or another, but some are affected more than others. Red Oaks, particularly Spanish Oak (Q.texana), Shumard oak (Q. shumardii), and Blackjack oak (Q. marilandica), are extremely susceptible and play a unique role in new Oak wilt infections. White Oaks, including Post Oaks (Q.stellata), Bur Oak (Q. macrocarpa), and Chinkapin Oak (Q. muehlenbergii), are resistant to the fungus and rarely die from Oak Wilt. Live Oaks (Q. virginiana and Q. fusiformis) are intermediate to susceptibility to Oak Wilt, but are most seriously affected due to there tendency to grow from root sprouts and form vast interconnected root systems that allow movement of the fungus between adjacent trees. The successful management of Oak Wilt depends on correct diagnosis and an understanding of how the pathogen spreads between different Oak species.
