We Get To The Root Of Tree Healthcare Problems

The sudden oak death disease starts in the trees when the air carrying fungi settle on any part of the tree. This disease is very critical as it will not only adversely affect the oak trees but also harms the other trees and plants nearby.

Until now, more than one million oak trees and tanoak trees are declined during the last decade. Also, hundreds of other tree and plant species are susceptible to this fungus. Thus, it is an emerging tree healthcare problem, and hence an effective sudden oak death treatment is crucial.

About Sudden Oak Death

Sudden Oak Death is a fungal disease caused by Phytophthora Ramorum. To be precise, it is one of 59 species of Phytophthora. It is popular in the counties of California, causing disease in plants and trees.

This fungus enters through the trunk of the oak trees and quickly spreads to all parts. They enjoy moist, cool, and foggy conditions as they love water and produce plenty of spores in the trunk. The fungus infects the vascular tissue of the tree in no time. It will block the transportation of nutrients and water to its canopy and roots. Also, the disease is capable of transmitting in the host plants at a distance of 15 feet. The transmission is carried through the soil and not air.

The disease can invite the invasion of pests like Bark Beetles and Bot Cankers. Hence, optimum diagnosis and treatment of sudden oak death are essential to limiting the spread of this fungus and other pathogens.

Symptoms Of Sudden Oak Death
