A warm, humid summer can cause fungus to grow on your otherwise stately, beautiful oak trees. This fungus can infiltrate the wood of the tree and steal vital nutrients that are necessary for the tree to thrive. It is important to rid your oak trees of this unsightly and potentially dangerous fungus before they are damaged beyond repair. This removal can be accomplished with products that are safe for yourself, your pets and your children.
