We have a fact sheet on Gambel oak (scrub oak) care available at
you can see, there are many insects and diseases that can affect and
even defoliate Gambel oak. Anthracnose might be what you have seen.
Also, in some years late hard frosts cause the new foliage to become
deformed or to die. I have heard of at least one report of that this
year. Either way, they almost certainly releaf and be fine. There is
nothing you need to do.

- Many years ago the back nieghbors laid sod about 6 inches higher than our sod and leaned it on the back cedar fence. They also put in small trees about 3 feet from the fence. The trees proved to be junk trees and now we have endless roots protruding above the ground 4-5 inches. If i hit them with the lawnmower cuts of a small bit of root and dulls the blade. Their are too many to cut out, if we lay sod over them will this solve the problem?? Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks
