The Q&A Archives: Scale? on Live Oak Trees

Question: Looks like some kind of scale on live oak trees also ligustrum bushes....sort of brown spots on the we need professional help? Trees are quite big.

Answer: R.C.,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I can't tell from that description whether it is scale or not. I suggest you take a sample to your County Extension Office and see if they can identify the problem and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
