Quoting from TexasOakWilt.org:

"Oak wilt, one of the most destructive tree diseases in the United States, is killing oak trees in central Texas at epidemic proportions. Oak wilt is an infectious disease caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fagacearum, which invades and disables the water-conducting system in susceptible trees. All oaks (Quercus spp.) are susceptible to oak wilt to some degree, but some species are affected more than others.” 

Oak wilt kills most common species of oak trees, and can seriously impact property values. Imagine your property with no oak trees!
