Oak – Frost Bitten Leaves

Q: Our ancient oak has not leafed out like normal. About half of the lower leaves look like they are burned or frost bit. None of our other oaks look like this.

A: You need a visit from a consulting arborist. These folks would rather save a tree than cut it down and they can give you an honest evaluation of your tree’s health. Visit the Georgia Arborist Association website (www.georgiaarborist.org) and look through their list of member companies.
