Disease and insects affecting swamp white oak are essentially the same as those found on white oak. Oak anthracnose can be damaging to individual trees but is generally not fatal. Swamp white oak is susceptible to the oak wilt fungus (Ceratocystis fagacearum) and in Illinois Phomopsis canker and Coniothyrium dieback were found on this oak. In addition, an Alternaria fungus was found on blighted petioles (4,7).
