white oak disease

Asked June 14, 2016, 4:21 PM EDT

The two very tall white oak trees in our yard appear diseased. They have diminished foliage and brown curled leaves in places. How do we identify the problem and hopefully save our trees? Ann and John Watts

There are a lot of things that could be causing the diminished foliage and brown curled leaves in your white oak trees. The best thing to do is to contact a certified arborist and have them take a look at the trees to see what's wrong and what can be done about it. You can find a list of arborists that work in Chesterfield County at this website.
