Update on stem canker surgical procedures

26 02 2019

Several year ago I began treating a coast live oak in Big Sur, CA with fire mimicry, which included surgical procedures on two stem cankers, presumably Sudden Oak Death infections. A few days ago I checked on the progress of this tree. Below are photos showing that the surgical wounds have healed nicely and there is no sign of further infection.

I also reported, last year, on the methods involved in the surgical procedure for stem canker infections like Sudden Oak Death. Below are photos showing two canker surgeries on the same oak. Close examination of the surgical wounds after one year show no sign of lingering infection (though this is not easily visible in the photos).
