Live Oak Tree Disease

Posted by Ken Ernst , Mar 06,2007,15:00       Forum

I live in Florida and have four large live oak trees. Last year, the leaves had a black film on them and they started to drop. This year, I noticed that the trees are very sparce and there are cobwebs on the ends of the branches. Does the tree have a fungs or mite that might be kill the trees? If so, what can I spay on them to kill the bugs or fungus?
