Just noticed some leaves gone white and withered looking. Is it something to worry about and what should I do? The tree is about 3 or 4 yrs old. I transplanted it because it was growing on a disused laneway but would eventually have been driven over. Thanks in advance

Powdery mildew of oaks. Nothing to worry about as this is more due to the fine weather and drought than anything else. The oak will survive but give it water if the soil is dry. It is coming near Autumn and it looks healthy otherwise. Cut out the affected leaves to reduce risk of spreading
