Heavy equipment has dam- aged the root system. Digging of water, sewage, electrical, gas or other lines have damaged parts of the root system. Buildings have been built or at least concrete poured over large areas of the tree's drip line. Soil has been removed or added around the tree. All of these items change the tree's environment. Trees are extremely sensitive to the change of their environment. All of these things create a stress upon a tree. Tree stress results in a couple of diseases - neither of which is controllable - they are only preventable. Remember that an awful lot of stress is weather related. Just think back at the record hot, cold, dry and wet conditions which have occurred in Henderson County since 1990. All of these record weather conditions can create severe tree stress. The drought of 1996 had a severe impact as well and last year's drought added a tremen- dous amount of stress as well. Stress induced tree diseases do not just happen overnight. These diseases may take six months or five years or longer to kill a tree. "The straw that broke the camel's back" could be a lot of different things fro trees already weakened from other causes. What can you do to keep trees healthy? Proper fertilization, prompt removal of damaged branches, adequate water, con- trol of insect defoliation and leaf diseases and aeration of soil under drip lines of trees when soil compaction is a problem all help tomaintain tree vigor. Hypoxylon Canker is one fun- gal disease that is commonly associated with oak trees that are in a high degree of stress. The disease is first evident as a die-back of one or more branches. The foliage of the diseased limbs turn yellow and branch to branch through the stem until eventually the tree dies. This may require one or more years depending upon the envi- ronment and amount of stress experiences by the tree. Near death or slightly after the death of the tree the outer bark sloughs off exposing large masses of brown, dusting one celled spores. Within a few weeks these spores are gone and a grayish surface if visible. This is cov- ered with numerous black fruit- g structures. WEST NILE VIRUS West ,Nile Virus, a form of sleeping sickness, was con- firmed May 29th in a horse in Southern Van Zandt County. Veterinarians at the Texas Animal Health Commission, the state's livestock health regula- tory agency, are urging owners of horses, mules, donkeys and other equids to ensure that their animals have been vaccinated against not only West Nile Vi- rus, but also against Eastern and Western Equine Encephalitis, two common forms of sleeping sickness. Vaccines are available to pro- tect horses, mules and donkeys against West Nile Virus and other sleeping sicknesses but the shots are of no value if they aren't given prior to disease exposure. The vaccines require two doses, administered three to six weeks apart, a full protection doesn't develop until four to six weeks after the second dose. Realistically, then, it can take seven to twelve weeks for the horse to develop maximum re- sistance to infection. That's why it is so impot to start the round of vaccina- tions now. They also remind equine own- ers that an annual booster is required for continued protec 7 tion of the animals.
