As fall approaches and winter being around the corner you might receive a notice from the city demanding you remove an infected oak with oak wilt. This is definitively a notice you weren’t expecting to get but probably saw signs of the your oaks leaves deteriorating over the last couple month or beginning to at the end of last season. This is unfortunate for a couple reasons, loosing a nice oak that creates shade and beauty to your landscape and if you have other oaks in the yard it can spread and effect the others.
It depend on the type of oak that is effected to where it could spread to. The best bet is to remove that oak and grind the stump down to kill that root system and prevent the spread of the oak wilt before next season.
If you got a notice from the city we can inspect the effected tree and other oaks you might have in your yard to stop the spread of oak wilt.
