Oak Wilt

Joseph O'Brien, USDA Forest Service, Bugwood.org
Oak wilt, Ceratocystis fagacearum, is a disease that affects oaks (especially red oaks, white oaks, and live oaks). It is one of the most serious tree diseases in the eastern United States, killing thousands of oaks each year in forests and landscapes.
The fungus takes advantage of wounded trees - the wounds promote infection. The fungus can move from tree to tree through roots or by insects. Once the tree is infected there is no known cure.
