Oak tree disease

11 years ago

I have 3 Red oak trees 25 feet tall, that have been very healthy, great leaves and plenty of acorns. Two weeks ago I found the lower canopy on one tree where the leave ends were turning black and curling downward, within a week the damage has risen up the tree, where 70 % of the lower leaves are black. The top half looks fine. One adjacent tree is about a week behind the first the other is about 10 days behind.

Probably not Oak wilt or Sudden oak disease as damage is from the bottom up but it is very quick. I have photo's. My neighbors Pin Oaks and live oaks are not involved. Yes we have had 30 inches of rain in a month but this damage is serious.
