This spring, Brunswick County’s Cooperative Extension office has received numerous samples of oak leaves infected with oak leaf blister, a fungal leaf spot in the Taphrina genus. The disease is common on all oak species.
Microscopic spores are produced in leaf spots during mid-spring. These spores are carried by wind and splashing raindrops to bud scales and twigs, where they remain in a resting stage until the following spring. Then, rain washes the spores onto young leaves where infection takes place.
