Fungicide Injections

Oak Wilt Pros use macro-injections to inject Alamo (propiconazole), a systemic fungicide, into the vascular system of the tree. The fungicide is injected into the tree’s water-conducting vascular system through small holes drilled into the root flares at the base of the tree. The injection acts similarly to an IV system allowing the fungicide to move through the tree, spreading through the entire canopy and into new growth. Treatment success depends on the health of the candidate tree, application rate, and injection technique. Find out more about our oak wilt services and click the link below.

This service plants one tree.

We pledge to plant a tree for every tree injected through our partnership with One Tree Planted.

Oak Wilt Trenching Services


We utilize trenches to break root connections between oak trees. This is the only way to stop root transmission of the oak wilt fungus through grafting. The most common technique is to sever roots by trenching at least 48 inches deep with trenching machines. We install suppression trenches to depths of 52 inches. This exceeds the Texas Forest Service standard. Also, we can provide further excavation when necessary.

We provide pre-purchase property inspections for oak wilt. Neglected oak wilt disclosures create massive problems. Inspections can help identify immediate oak wilt threats on the property under consideration. In addition, oak wilt inspections can also reveal any threats along property lines that could become an issue in the future. We issue reports that will discuss our findings, usually within 48 hours of inspection. Reports will include any recommended treatments, and any costs associated with treatment and prevention services.
