DNR - Avoid Pruning or Wounding Oak Trees Between Through July 15th
Mon, 03 May 2021 06:02:17 EDT


From now until July 15th, Department of Natural Resources officials say oak trees are at high risk for oak wilt, a fungal disease that can weaken white oak and kill red oak trees within weeks of infection.

To minimize the risk of oak wilt infection, the DNR restricts cutting of red oak trees on state land until July 15th.

The DNR also recommends private forest landowners exercise caution during this period and, whenever possible, delay harvesting activity in oak forests until after July 15th.
