What’s happening to my pecan tree

Asked May 6, 2019, 7:34 PM EDT

The leaves have holes in them and bumps on them. What is this and how do I treat it?

Williamson County Texas

This is caused by an insect called phylloxera; at this point there is nothing that can be done. They really do not hurt the tree, rather just affect the aesthetic appearance of the tree. Next year spray the tree when it first buds out with dormant oil.

Good luck!!
