Yes Lucidity, Lebowski achiever told me about that thread, I didn't know that when I started this one. For some reason, mods didn't closed yet, probably because I had a different source or because they agree this is something that require more attention from us.

Thank you.

Well I just found out what's killing my oak trees here in S. Texas. We just had a visit from our county extension agent and they informed us that our trees are dying due to a disease known as Hypoxylon Canker. Apparently, this disease is always present and most healthy trees can successfully combat it, but when the trees are subjected to extreme stress the disease takes over and usually kills the tree. We had an 18 month long drought, (worst I've seen in 20 yrs. here) which ended about a year ago and apparently this was the stress factor which triggered the death of at least a dozen of my trees. More can be learned about this disease here; txforestservice.tamu.edu...
