Hypoxylon canker

TREE CANCER AND VERY DEALY TO YOUR TREES

Hypoxylon canker is one of the leading diseases that decimates trees in North Texas. It is not a species disease but more of an overall tree disease that can affect your plantation with or without cause contaminating your entire mott of trees. It is highly contagious within a group and normally can decimate your trees by causing death within a few months. This disease is better known as tree cancer and if not caught early in the stages is not curable.

Signs are simple you will start to see browning at the very top of your crown were leafs will start to foliage out of season and then branches will start to weather turning yellow and brown until they are completely dried up. This disease then starts to work its way down the main vascular system of the tree by causing either brown or white spotting that will eventually turn black.

It will cause the bar to peel off where the interior of the tree will dry out and turn a white color just like on the picture to your left. Once it is in this advanced stage tree stands very little chance of surviving. Insects that are dormant in the tree can then spread out to other trees on your property contaminating the whole group and causing thousands of dollars in damage by you having to remove your trees entirely and being forced to replant again. If caught in its early stages there are several treatments that can be applied through either spraying or tree injections straight into the vascular system but once again it has to be caught in its early stages.
