PREVENT OAK WILT
SAVE OUR BEAUTIFUL TREES
1. Avoid pruning Oak trees between early February and late June.
2. If it is necessary to prune susceptible trees, or if trees are wounded, use a wound paint (pruning sealer) immediately. A new infection can be started quickly on a fresh wound (less than 15 minutes). Wounds are naturally sealed off by the tree after about a week. So painting old wounds is of no value. All fresh wounds, regardless of size or if the removed branch was alive or dead, should be painted. Click on this link for additional information: https://stopoakwilt.com/oak-wilt.html
