    I have a very large oak in my back yard. Over the last week or so leaves have started to fall off at a fairly rapid rate. This is one of the leaves in the picture. It seems early for leaves to be coming down in CT, and it seems to be the only tree dropping them.Q

    Don't necessarily give up on a White Oak even if it has oak wilt. They will often times grow through it. They compartmentalize the fungus better than Red Oaks and sometimes it just makes them sick for a couple of years, then they recover.
