We have a very tall Red Oak standing in a bed of ivy 20 feet from our house. Until this year, it looked healthy. Now it is stressed and seems to be begging for help. The leaves nearer the top are shriveled up and yellow. Closer to the ground, we can see that the leaves are most brown at its distal portions. There is also some brown spotting. We wonder if this is a result of the drought, the ivy or, a blight of some sort?
There are many factors that go into a proper diagnosis of potential biological or environmental conditions which can cause stress on our trees. In order to create a pertinent recommendation for your particular tree and property, it is recommended you contact an ISA Certified Arborist for a full evaluation. You can do so by clicking here.
