Oak Wilt Management

What Is Oak Wilt?

Oak Wilt is a fungal disease caused by the pathogen Ceratocystis fagacearum, which affects various species of Oak trees. The disease spreads through interconnected root systems or by sap-feeding beetles, leading to tree decline, wilting of leaves, and ultimately, death. Oak Wilt is especially problematic during mid to late summer when fungal mats form on infected trees, attracting beetles and facilitating the disease’s spread.
