Oak Wilt Treatment and Prevention
Oak wilt is most commonly spread from diseased oak trees to healthy trees either below-ground via connected roots or above-ground by insects (sap beetles). Transmission by the beetles occurs during April through mid-July.
Preventing the spread of oak wilt from an infected tree to a nearby healthy oak tree via connected roots is usually accomplished through root plowing, where the connected roots between diseased and healthy oaks are cut with a vibrating plow. The diseased oak tree (or trees) then have to be cut down and removed from the property.
Certified for Oak Wilt Treatments
Oak wilt can be treated through the use of fungicide injections in the very early staged of oak wilt. Fungicide injections can also be done to oak trees near an infected tree know to have Oak Wilt. These injections to treat oak wilt should only be done by a certified tree professional.
Anoka County and Sherburne County have the highest concentration of oak wilt in Minnesota, and it is important to identify and treat your trees immediately. The safest time to remove and prune trees with oak wilt is the winter months.
