Oak trees in our area are susceptible to Oak Wilt. Oak wilt is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fagacearum, is the most destructive disease affecting Live Oaks and Red Oaks in Central Texas. Most of the tree mortality results from tree to tree spread of the pathogen through interconnected or grafted root systems, once an oak with center becomes established. New infection centers begin when beetles carry oak wilt fungal spores from infected red oaks to fresh, open wound on healthy oaks. Wounds include any damage caused by wind, hail, vehicles, construction, squirrels, birds or pruning. Research has shown that both oak wilt fungal mats on infected red oaks and insects that carry oak wilt spores are most prevalent in the spring. Below is a brief description of how you can reduce the risk of fungal spread when pruning.
