The Q&A Archives: Oak Tree

Question: We have an oak tree that the leaves are dry and wrinkled. The tree is already shedding its leaves. The other trees do not seem to be affected. What can I do to make this tree healthy again.

Answer: It's almost impossible to diagnose a plant problem without lots of details and a sample of the problem. Could be a disease; could be cultural problems. For a positive identification of the problem and control strategies, contact your local Cooperative Extension office or Master Gardener Clinic. Be prepared to give the tree's history, exposure to sunshine, watering and fertilizing practices, and a sample of the problem. Best wishes with your oak!
