Drought and Insect Defoliation in the Coastal Plains Post Oak Savannah of TX

Tue, 05/05/2015 - 10:03 -- wchristie

ForWarn discovered a disturbance in East Central Texas within the coastal plains post oak savannah. Detected mostly in hardwood areas, the decline may be attributed to the 2001 drought. Based on previous data, the area of concern has had periodic decline and wilt issues. The large scale decline is associated with loss of eastern red cedar from delayed drought mortality as well as cankerworm defoliation.
