The Signs of Chlorosis on Trees

June 9, 2023
Sunny Crutchfield

ISA Certified Arborist James from TreeNewal introduces us to a struggling pin oak tree with signs of Chlorosis. Upon closer inspection, the tree appears off-colored, with yellowing leaves indicating Chlorosis, specifically iron chlorosis—an iron micronutrient deficiency. James explains that in North Texas, the alkaline soil binds the iron, making it inaccessible for the tree to absorb.

Examining the leaves, James points out the contrasting deep green veins and yellow outer margins. This is a clear sign of reduced chlorophyll production. The tree has less energy with lower chlorophyll levels, rendering it more susceptible to secondary threats like wood borers and fungal infections such as anthracnose.

Fortunately, this issue is correctable with the right products. If you notice your pin oak or any tree displaying similar yellowing and distress, James recommends contacting an arborist or visiting their website at for professional assistance.

Don’t let Chlorosis compromise the health of your trees. Contact TreeNewal Certified Arborist and let their expertise help your trees regain their vibrancy and vitality.
