Oak Wilt

The fall is a time of danger for oak trees in Wisconsin. During the late summer and fall months oak trees are vulnerable to a disease known as oak wilt. Oak wilt is a fungus that can severely harm and kill oak trees. The risk is highest around July and August, however the DNR states that the risk of oak wilt is still prevalent until November. To prevent oak wilt, wait to prune or cut oak trees until November when the temperature starts to dip. Though it may be inconvenient to wait until it is cold, it is whats safest for the future of our forests.
