DNR advises caution to prevent spread of oak wilt disease
April 15 marks the beginning of the yearly window when oak wilt can be transmitted from diseased to healthy red oak trees. The normal time-tested advice is to prevent oak wilt by not pruning or otherwise “injuring” oaks from April 15 to July 15”.
Last year Belle Isle lost over 200 trees to red oak wilt.
Red Oak trees are a primary tree on the Wildlife Sanctuary Trail and throughout our Open Space properties. Contact Roger Mech (810-229-4155) or go to www.michigan.gov/dnr for more information.
