Oak Leaf Skeletonizing Note

June 7, 2000

We continue to receive oak samples that have a condition we described in issue no. 5 of this newsletter called oak skeletonizing or oak tatters. Donna Danielson of The Morton Arboretum brought to our attention a related article by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service. They have a pest alert on oak tatters that is located at the Web site http://willow.ncfes.umn.edu/pubs/pest_al/oaktatters/oaktatters.htm. The site has some photos for those of you who are not certain what oak tatters does to oaks.
