Why would bark fall off oak trees? They are old and in 10-year dev.
House built 8 yrs ago. The oaks have some weeping stain after the second year. Now six years later the bark is falling off. One tree has grooves in the exposed wood where the bark fell off. Other oaks have just the exposed wood showing.
What should we do? We had a Bartlett tree service come out and he said to fertilize the trees. Are the trees diseased? Should we have them removed? I do not know if our neighbors have the same problem. If we have them removed, how do we dispose of the trees?
