How to identify, prevent and control oak wilt

Oak wilt disease  has not yet been found in Ontario and Quebec yet but the risk is great  and forest owners should be on the look out for it. Oak wilt is an aggressive disease that affects many species of oak (Quercus spp). It is one of the most serious diseases in the Eastern United States killing thousands of oaks each year in forests, woodlots and home landscapes. It can be spread by beetles carrying the fungus spores to healthy trees or through the roots  systems.
