What's happening to my tree?

Went out to water the lawn and found a bunch of dry leaves.
Looked up and about 5 smaller branches are completely dead.
Is this some sort of fungus virus infection?
I don't know about trees, landscaping etc.
I just know I don't want it to dry up.
I'm gonna try to get up there tomorrow and prune those off.
I think it's a water oak, about 15 years old.
I water the lawn 2-3 times per week, plus lots of good rain lately.
There's about 3 more branches that I couldn't fit in the screen.
Anyone know what's causing this?

Just prune the dead branches first. Watering's ok I guess, and I doubt its getting too much water. And usually a fungus eats the inside of the trunk so it's like a silent killer. Your best bet is to take the picture and a dead branch to your local nursery and there's always at least one guy that knows what to do/use to save the tree.

I had a guy come out about a week ago for the same issue. I have a water oak around the same age and it had spots of brown leaves all over the tree, top to bottom. The service (Trees by Frank) said it wasn't a problem. I went ahead and let them clean up the dead and wayward branches, which made the tree look 100% better...

looks like the tree is stressed, possibly shedding appendages to survive. plants do this as a defense mechanism to sustain themselves. deep root watering is a must in this case.

You're on the right path bro, must be all of the Gardenline!!! Deep root feed that tree too! I lost a beautiful mature magnolia this year and I'm still off about it. Now I have to get a tree co to come cut it down and grind the stump.

if your tree survived last summer I wouldn't worry about watering it.

Check the dead branches, make sure you don't have some boring insect that was eathing up and down the inside of the stalk

During the drought last year, at my older friend's house, I put a hose on her ac drip pipe and led it out to her stressed out tree in the back. Needless to say it did great after that.
