Oak Wilt: Common Minnesota Tree Disease
Oak Wilt affects mostly Oak trees and is typically found in the southern part of the state. Now it is spreading to the mid metro area of Minnesota. This includes Anoka as well.
What is Oak Wilt you ask? Oak wilt is caused by a nonactive fungus and is a vascular disease of the tree. The way that this disease is spread and how it can kill thousands of trees a year is from two ways.
- The first way is through root grafts, this is when trees planted close together or grown close together where the root connects and grafts with another trees root system. When the tree gets wounded an infection can start then it is easily transferred to another tree through its connection when grafts occur. Therefore creating a mass infection.
- Another way for the trees to become infected is above ground by beetles carrying the fungus from one tree to another. The most common time of year for this infestation to occur through the beetles is between April 1st and July 15th.
