Chris Dolan has this added detail about treatment of oak wilt:
Chris Dolan has provided this detail about our concerns, pending the time he can do our survey:
“Preventative injections are highly recommended for healthy Live Oaks in areas of oak wilt infection. This applies to trees in your neighborhood. However, you absolutely should not have trees injected during leaf exchange, and we should wait until after leaf exchange (late April or early May) to make an accurate diagnosis as to which trees are good candidates for the injection process. Injecting the trees with fungicide is an invasive process, and we do not want to inject trees that are not likely to be infected this year.
I realize that it may be frustrating, but we need to wait until after leaf exchange to make proper recommendations.”
