Carmel oaks respond to fire mimicry

Two years ago a property owner in Carmel, CA approached me about helping improve the health of her sick oak trees. When I inspected her oaks I found them to be severely diseased and the canopies very thin. I told her that I wasn’t sure I could save her diseased oaks, but that I felt confident I could help her other oaks. She agreed to have all her oaks treated with fire mimicry.

Two years later, the diseased oaks (first three sets of photos) are recovering nicely and the remaining oaks on both properties are showing improved canopy health. The photos below show the results of all the oaks I’ve treated on her property over the past two years. The photos show a nice response in some oaks, others showing a limited response. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the results in just two years.
