Dave Madden, an arborist with The Davey Tree Expert Co., consulted on the project to protect the Texas live oak trees during construction. Fortunately, the species is hardy and can withstand some root impaction and major root cuts though any wounds need to immediately be protected from oak wilt, a quickly spreading fungal disease.
