There are many types of oak trees that are native to Texas and all of America, and there are many diseases that are specific to and affect oak trees. Galls are one such form of disease that affects oaks. However, before you think of worst-case scenarios regarding your oak trees, there are some interesting facts pertaining to galls that you should know. Let's examine them here.
First, what is a gall? A gall is a growth which can be found on several parts of trees, including the leaves, twigs, flowers, and roots. This growth is produced when certain species of insects deposit their eggs into any of these parts of the tree. (Galls may also be produced by fungi or bacteria). Commonly known insects who do this include wasps, mites, and flies. The galls are formed as a result of a chemical reaction between the larvae and the tree, and their onset is most commonly seen during the spring when budding begins. Once the gall is formed, the larvae feed on the tissue contained within it until they are fully developed and emerge as adults.
Galls that are brown in color, hollowed, and dried out are so from providing nourishment to its inhabiting organism. Once the adult has emerged, galls will contain small holes through which the adult insect emerged. These are signs that the gestational cycle involving the gall is complete.
If you have a tree that you believe is affected by galls, but aren't quite certain, contact an Austin tree removal professional. If your tree is affected by galls, chances are any damage will be minimal. However, if your tree is affected by something else, it is best to have a professional diagnose the disease as quickly as possible so corrective measures can be taken and your investment can be preserved.
