WHAT IS SUDDEN OAK DEATH (SOD)?

In short, if you value the oak woodlands of California or the oak in your front yard, it is something you should know, and be concerned about. We are able to recommend maintenance practices that are proven to resist the contraction of SOD in some trees. If you believe your tree is already infected, we can confirm your diagnosis and recommend treatment if the infection is identified in its early stages. In the late stages of the disease, complete removal of the host is the only effective treatment, i.e., tree removal.

 

As it is a new disease to the area, the current understand is constantly evolving and so too are the recommendations. We work hard to stay up to date with current research.
