Dutch Elm Disease Treatment

Dutch Elm Tree Disease

Dutch elm is the most well-known and prevalent wilt disease in the United States. It has been reported to infect trees in Flower Mound, Texas and other surrounding cities. The spread of this disease has increased dramatically in Dallas and surrounding areas such as Flower Mound (Delhi), Flower Mound, Lufkin (Waco), Lufkin (San Antonio), and elsewhere over the past decade. American elms are extremely susceptible. Arbor professionals believe these areas have been greatly affected since this elm species thrives in these locations.

This deadly disease is rapidly spreading and should only be handled by an experienced tree company. Dutch elm is a disease that attacks the cells of trees and prevents healthy flow and nutrients from the roots up to the trunk and branches and finally to the leaves. Dutch elm illness spreads quickly to the tree limbs. Young branches develop curled, hook-like ends and begin dying within weeks.

The Diagnosis Of Dutch Elm Disease

Certified arborists can quickly diagnose this serious tree disease. An experienced Flower Mound tree company will confirm that Dutch elm illness is present by visible symptoms, such as dead branches and disease-transmitting Bark Beetles. Uneven streaks underneath the bark indicate the presence of the dangerous disease. The tree service technicians can see them when the bark has been removed. To confirm Dutch elm illness, a professional plant pathologist conducts routine laboratory testing. Flower Mound Tree Service & Stump Grinding specialists are qualified and capable to conduct all testing required to diagnose the disease accurately and determine the best course of action to eradicate it.
