Dead areas in Redwood trees

Asked August 26, 2019, 12:37 PM EDT

Would you be able to diagnose the cause of dead areas in Redwood trees on my property. If you can’t, could you recommend who I should talk to. I can take a photo and send it to you when I get home if that will help. I appreciate any help you can provide.

Hi,

Yes, let’s start with some photos.

It is often very helpful to have a picture showing context for the problem (whole tree or group of trees), as well as a close up of the problem or symptom itself. Generally several different scales and angles are good. Transition points often have clues.

Please provide additional information about your location/the site, other things (like construction) that might affect the tree.

Please send images to my email brad.w-r@oregonstate.edu

Thanks.

Brad
