Hypoxolyn Canker: Weatherford and North Texas Tree Disease
| The weather extremes in Weatherford, Fort Worth and North Texas can be very stressful for trees. We may view see trees as large and permanent; and able to withstand almost any weather or conditions. But trees are actually vulnerable to many diseases.
Hypoxolyn Canker in Trees
Trees experience stress related to the environment in which they grow. Hypoxolyn Canker is a disease that can appear in stressed trees. Periods of extended droughts, or too much moisture, including the over-use of chemicals like insecticides, can cause stress. When a tree’s immune system is weak due to stressful environment conditions, it can get sick. The tree can be then attacked by Hypoxolyn Canker.
Signs of Hypoxolyn Canker in Trees
It is not hard to spot this disease; the first signs will be on the bark of the tree. The bark cracks and sloughs off, leaving the trunk of the tree exposed, like a wound. Then, it will spread to the branches; leaving the trees leafless, and looking unaesthetic. If left untreated, these wounds on the trunk will eventually lead to the death of the tree. Hypoxolyn canker will also affect any nearby trees as well.
If you wish to save your trees, immediate measures must be taken; because it usually doesn’t take more than a year or two for the disease to terminate a tree. And even though it looks like the bark has been attacked by a fungus, no need to buy and apply fungicides; they won’t work on the Hypoxolyn Canker.
