⚡️This Red Oak developed Hypoxylon canker disease after being struck by lighting. It appears as a dead lesion on limbs, branches, and trunks of affected trees. The canker develops just under the bark and in advanced stages, causes a white rot decay of the sapwood. This decay contributes to tree mortality, compromises the structural integrity of the tree, and makes it a danger to life and property.
Trees stressed by environmental extremes and in danger of succumbing to Hypoxylon canker manifest symptoms typical of a declining tree.
🍂 Yellow, brown leaves
🍂 Small leaves and reduced twig growth and thinning canopy
🍂 Dead limbs and branches
🍂 Epicormic shoots (water sprouts) growing on trunks and large limbs
🍂 Dieback of feeder roots
🍂 White and stringy sapwood in the cankered area
