Accurate Oak Wilt Diagnosis

Many trees are being removed for a misdiagnosis.  In our area, many oak trees are removed because they were diagnosed with oak wilt, but in actuality they have oak anthracnose.  Although anthracnose can be a precursor to oak wilt because of the decline of vigor and vitality caused by severe cases of anthracnose, it is not necessary to remove the oak tree because of oak anthracnose.

Contact us for an accurate diagnosis -

Verbal diagnosis - $150 and consultation

Laboratory diagnosis - $225 and consultation

Do not plan for an oak removal because of a misdiagnosis!
