The article says the current suspicion is focused on a bacterial cause, but jeez that looks eerily similar to the sudden oak death killing oaks (Phytophthora ramorum) out in california. Rand--this is my reaction as well. The pics look like Sudden Oak Disease to me as well. A lot of nursery stock (p...
