The Enemies of Your Oak
Oaks are strong, and they can be huge; reaching up to 70 feet in height and nine feet in diameter. The branches can expand up to 135 feet. Despite the strength, these trees aren’t invincible. Neglect and diseases can wreak havoc on their health and shorten their life.
Pests can spin pad-like structures on trunks and branches. They can structurally weaken a tree. Common oak pests are gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar), scarlet oak sawfly (Caliroa quercus coccinea), and lace bugs (Corythucha ciliate).
Trees can fall ill. In fact, a disease called Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthora ramorum) is a primary cause of oaks dying in the Bay Area. Other diseases to strike oaks include anthracnose, leaf blister, and root rot.
Oaks are living beings. From an acorn in the ground, they grow into adulthood and eventually die. Their needs change according to their age. It’s essential to provide them with what they need to sustain their growth and maintain their health.
