Damage suffered to Oak trees due to the February cold spell is across the board in regards to severity. The amount of damage varies by each individual tree. Luckily for most Oak tree owners, we are only seeing a small number of Oaks with damage. Unfortunately, a small portion of the Oaks with damage have major crown loss of up to 80 percent. 

Before I go any farther with this story on freeze damage to Oaks across Texas I need to tell you that Steve Houser’s company, Arborilogical Services, is a sponsor of several things that I do, including this e-publication.

However, neither Steve nor I would let that get in the way of honest reporting on the status of trees in our state. Here is what he sent me a few days ago.
