Common Tree Diseases: In this informative video, we delve into the world of seasonal plant diseases and how they affect various trees and shrubs. Our ISA Certified Arborist expert, Wes Rivers, provides valuable insights into the occurrence, symptoms, and management of prevalent diseases that emerge throughout the year.

Starting with Entomosporium leaf spot, commonly found during the spring, we explore its impact on Indian hawthorn and petunias. Discover how this fungal disease thrives in mild temperatures, abundant rainfall, and high humidity, leading to red lesions and defoliation.

As we move into summer, we encounter powdery mildew, affecting plants like crepe myrtles and oaks. Uncover its causes, appearance, and recommended strategies for prevention and control.

The discussion takes an interesting turn as our expert delves into root diseases. Particularly prevalent in post oaks found in sandy, well-aerated soil. Learn how excessive irrigation weakens these trees, making them susceptible to root rot and decline.

Additionally, we shed light on the lesser-known tubakia leaf spot, a disease that typically emerges in late summer, affecting post oaks and associated red oaks. Find out how it manifests as small, round lesions, and its surprising impact on blackjack oaks, known for their drought tolerance.

The video also addresses two destructive diseases caused by phytophthora and seiridium cankers. Gain valuable knowledge on identifying and managing these issues, including the telltale signs, potential damage to vascular tissues, and effective treatment options.
