It is not uncommon to see damage to trees from diseases in the Houston area, including:
- Aphids. These sap-sucking insects can damage leaves and stems, wilting the tree and possibly killing it.
- Bacterial leaf scorch. Leaves become damaged as the tree is stressed by heat and not enough watering.
- Chlorosis. Iron deficiency or lack of sunlight can cause leaves to lose their natural green color.
- Citrus greening. Disease caused by a insect that east the leaves and stems of trees, causing a bacteria infection.
- Crape Myrtle Bark Scale. A white-colored pest leaves behind groupings of eggs and nymphs that can eventually cause a fungal infection.
- Gall. Unsightly growths can appear on the branches of trees.
- Hypoxylon canker. Brown lesions form on the truck and branches of distressed oak and hardwoods, killing the tree tissues.
- Mildew. Trees can be plagued by a white growth of fungus.
- Oak wilt. A disease caused by fungus from infected red oaks, limiting water conduction, resulting in a tree wilting and dying.
- Root rot. A fungus that kills roots and trunk tissues.
