Oak Season

Winter season is OAK season and this paragraph will explain why. Oaks need to be cut when its cold out, due to a fungal disease by the organism  Bretziella fagacearum. Oak wilt is a devastating exotic disease, killing some trees rapidly in a single season, and sometimes it can take a few seasons. The disease is dispersed by insect vectors and to adjacent trees through underground root networks. However, human spread is the most consequential dispersal method. By moving known infectious oak wood after it was cut down or trimmed. There is hope though. That is why it is important to only trim them during the colder months. It gives the tree time to heal itself to prevent the infection.

A few pictures to the left will show the cycle and what to look for.

Oak Wilt first appear inside the bark as spore mats, which cause the bark to crack. Unfortunately you probably won’t see this symptom. The spores smell sweet and attract the sap-sucking Nitidulid Beetle. This beetle feeds on the sap from the fresh wounds in the tree made from pruning, storm damage, or other injuries, which in turn spread the fungus. Once the fungus reaches the vascular tissue, the tree tries to protect itself from the further spread by plugging cells and causing branches to wilt. Starting at the leaves. However, it’s good to keep in mind that all the different Oaks behave differently when infected. You will notice yellowing and then browning leaves at the top of your trees. The individual leaves will begin to brown at the margin toward the end of the leaf and then progress down the margin to the stem. As the leaves brown, they will fall from the tree and litter the ground. Here is the kicker, once the wilt starts and the fungi is spread there is no saving the infected tree. And if not taken care of in a prominent timely matter, you may not be able to save the surrounding oaks nearby.
