Smooth Patch, A Bark Lesion of White Oak

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Smooth patch is a pathological bark lesion. The disease causes the outer and corky regions of the bark to flake off. Although saprophytic, it indirectly affects the health of a tree through the reduced bark thickness and the consequent decreased protection against desiccation, wood-destroying fungi and mechanical injury.
