Help Prevent the Spread of Oak Wilt

Posted on March 15, 2021 at 9:25 AM by Micah Grau

What is Oak Wilt?

Oak Wilt is a fungal disease that spreads rapidly through infected roots and by beetles that drink the sap from fresh cuts on trees.

To prevent the spread of Oak Wilt, the trimming of Oak trees is not permitted between February 1 through July 1 unless performed under the direction of a certified Arborist. Any outbreaks of Oak Wilt should be reported to the City of Buda.
