Hello,

About 5 years ago I found an acorn with a wee sprout coming out of it and now my oak tree has been going great.

This year however i'm a little concerned about him.

First, he bloomed much, much later than everything else in the garden, around mid-April i suppose. But he seemed happy when he got going.

Now, he's grown some long offshooting branches and these branches are now withering. But what concerns me is that the leaves on these branches are covered in a white mold like substance that looks like frost.

Should I prune these branches or do I need to do something else?

Thanks!

Welcome, Crown.
Prune those branches. Then bag up a diseased one and take it to your local Ag extension to see what disease they think it could be. Use clean tools to cut and clean well after in order not to spread whatever it is. There are sprays that can be used for some mildews and fungi diseases. That is another thing your local extension or university can help with suggestions and timing.
