Scientists tracking the spread of the Sudden Oak Death disease in Northern California are renewing their campaign to involve residents in spotting outbreaks, especially in highly susceptible bay laurel trees that spread the infection to Oaks. At Image Tree Service in Windsor, CA, we know that homeowners love their Oak trees for a wide range of reasons and many people believe that they’re valued members of their family. So, if you have an Oak or two, be on the look for the outset
In the largest "Sudden Oak Death Blitz" to date, researchers at UC Davis are seeking help in 21 coastal California communities from San Luis Obispo to Mendocino County. By using accurate data and dealing with the problem before it becomes an epidemic, researchers are hoping to make the Bay Area a safer place for Oak trees to live.
The invasive disease is killing Tanoak, Coast Live Oak, California Black Oak, Shreve's Oak and Canyon Live Oak trees in California. It is the primary cause of tree mortality in coastal California, with more than three million trees having died in 15 counties, including Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Solano since its discovery in the mid-1990s, according to a news release from the California Oak Mortality Task Force.
The disease pathogen Phytophthora Ramorum is a moisture-loving organism that tends to be more active in the fog belt, which means cities close to the ocean may encounter more diseased trees.
