pin oak tree disease

Posted by Mary Ripka , Jul 10,2005,22:05       Forum

I have 3 pin oak trees (about 40 yeears old) in my front yard. I live in the Kansas City area. Over the last few years many of the lower branches have died. I noticed that first all the leaves on a branch begin to curl up and then they eventually turn brown in the fall before the healthy leaves turn brown. By the following spring the leafless branches are droppy and dead. What is the disease? What causes this? Is ther anything I can do to stop it? Will it eventually kill the trees?
