Guidelines For Oak Wilt Prevention 

Oak wilt is a destructive tree fungus that affects oaks and causes tree mortality; the risk for infection is greatest between February and June. Please follow these simple precautions to help prevent the spread of this destructive tree disease in Steiner Ranch: 
 - DO NOT PRUNE OR TRIM OAKS BETWEEN FEBRUARY 1 AND JUNE 30! 
 - Paint fresh oak wounds immediately after pruning with wound dressing or latex paint.
 - Sterilize and clean pruning tools with Lysol or bleach solution between sites and trees.
 - Immediately chip or burn debris from diseased red oaks. 

If you are uncertain about trimming guidelines, please consult a Texas oak wilt certified arborist, an oak wilt specialist from a city, county or state agency, such as the Texas Forest Service or Texas AgriLife Extension Service, or visit texasoakwilt.org.
