Diagnosing Grape Phylloxera Disease

Diagnosis is quickly completed by a certified arborist after inspecting the vine, examining the root structure and laboratory-testing the soil.  1/4" bumps that are casings for phylloxera eggs cover leaves and the vine exhibits a thinning, weak appearance.  Dead areas on roots prevent adequate water and nutrients from being dispersed through the vine.  Infected soil is definitive confirmation of Grape Phylloxera infestation.  The Southlake arbor care professional analyzes the diagnosis report and determines the immediate treatment required and customizes the continual maintenance and care plan necessary to stop phylloxera destruction.
