Prevention of Oak Wilt
 
River Place Estates has many beautiful oak trees throughout the subdivision which enhances the beauty as well as the value of our homes.  Oak wilt is a real problem in Central Texas (not excluding River Place) which can kill trees very quickly and spread if certain precautions are not taken.   
 
Oak wilt is the most destructive disease affecting live oaks and red oaks in Central Texas.  Most of the tree mortality results from tree-to-tree through root systems once an oak wilt center becomes established.  New infections are caused when beetles carry oak wilt fungal spores from infected trees to fresh open wounds on healthy oaks.  Wounds are caused by wind, hail, vehicles, construction, squirrels, birds and pruning.  Insects that carry the fungal spores are most prevalent in the spring.  Below is a brief description to reduce the risk of fungal spread when pruning.
 
Always paint fresh wounds on oaks with wound dressing or latex paint immediately after pruning.
Clean all pruning tools with 10% bleach solution between sites or trees.
If possible, avoid pruning between February 1 and June 30.
Debris from diseased oaks should be immediately chipped, burned or destroyed.
 
If you are looking to plant new trees that are not as susceptible to oak wilt you can plant white oaks which include bur, chinquapin, Monterrey and post oaks.  Red Oaks and Live Oaks are most susceptible.  
 
If you have any questions you may contact a Texas Oak Wilt Certified Arborist, or the Bell County Extension Office.
