How We Manage Sudden Oak Death

We are a team of experienced professionals who are dedicated to providing quality service that resolves problems. For over 40 years, we’ve provided residential and commercial tree-spraying services to Silicon Valley and the Peninsula.

Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthora ramorum) emerged in the mid-1990s, decimating millions of tanoak trees and various oak species, including coast live oak, California black oak, Shreve oak, and canyon live oak. The first detection of P. ramorum-infested rhododendron nursery plants in the U.S. occurred in 2001 in Santa Cruz County, CA. We serve the Bay Area with targeted preventative treatment for Sudden Oak Death.

About SOD

Phytophthora ramorum manifests in two types of symptoms depending on the host plant. In tanoaks and certain other oak species, it causes bole or trunk cankers, while most shrubs and non-woody plants exhibit leaf spots, often accompanied by shoot dieback. Trunk cankers are particularly damaging and frequently result in tree death. Additionally, weakened oak and tanoak trees that are infected by P. ramorum frequently become targets for bark beetle attacks, which accelerates mortality.

Custom SOD Treatment Plans:

Every property and tree is unique. That’s why we create customized treatment plans as per the specific requirements of each property. Our SOD prevention protocols are annual programs that are informed by the latest scientific research and our extensive experience in the field.
