Oak wilt disease threatens Texas oaks in spring

From February through June, oak trees should not be pruned or wounded to prevent the spread of oak wilt disease.

Texas A&M Forest Service reminds Texans that it is especially critical to avoid pruning oaks in Texas counties affected by oak wilt. To learn more about the oak wilt disease, see the story in the February 21 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
