My poor Shumard Oak

8 years ago

We had a 30 gallon Shumard Oak planted in the front yard of our new house the first week of June along with several other types trees in other parts of our property.
2 weeks ago I noticed that the leaves on our oak tree were starting to look kind of shriveled. I chalked it up to the hot weather. Then a few days ago they started turning brown and now have almost all fallen off. The rest of our trees, a Live Oak, Chinese Pistache, Blue Atlas Cedar and Golden Deodar are all doing great.
I am going to call the place that installed the tree, but thought I would check here first to see if anyone had any insight.
Also the trunk of the tree is oozing some liquid in 2 different areas.
Any ideas?
Thanks! ....Norma
