Oak Tree problems

Asked October 7, 2020, 8:02 PM EDT

I recently purchased a few oak trees from a nearby nursery and only after I got them home did I realize that there are a couple of problems. I am hoping you can help me identify them so that I can treat them appropriately if treatment is required.
Thank you!

Your trees are going to loose their leaves soon so I would not worry about any blemishes on the leaves. The best thing you can do for your trees are to make sure they get a good inch of water each week so they go into the winter well hydrated. Also a 2 to 3 inch mulch around them (but not touching the bark) would be good.
