What Are Hypoxylon Cankers?

There are many things that can affect your trees and cause them to wither or die. Hypoxylon cankers are one. Hypoxylon cankers are a form of fungus that can travel through the air with spores that infect mostly oak trees. This fungus can be found in healthy trees, though the fungus doesn’t actually attack healthy trees. It’s the already stressed or damaged trees in your yard that you need to worry about. Once hypoxylon cankers begin to infect and form in your oak tree, you may have some issues. Normally, this fungus only harms stressed trees that have in some way had an environmental change. Often, if you’re experiencing a drought in your area and your tree has become stressed or damaged as a result, hypoxylon cankers really thrive.
