Is my tree sick? #749866

Asked May 14, 2021, 8:27 AM EDT

I have a large burr oak that had few leaves last year and doesn’t have much going on yet this year. Do you have any specialists near Alexandria that could come look at it?

Douglas County Minnesota

Expert Response

We don’t do site visits.  If you have a good picture we may be able to help.  A closeup of any problem areas would be good..bark, branches, leaves and overall tree.

Also check if there is a city forester in Alexandria.  They may be able to help.  There may also be a local Department of Natural Resources/DNR contact that may be able to help.

Here are some typical Burr Oak problems that you can look for:
