Oak wilt is a growing problem in many areas of Austin, Texas and we can help you. We recommend not trimming oaks between the months of February and June. By avoiding this now, you can prevent oak wilt from occurring in the first place. Sap beetles start to feed during this time. They move from one oak to another tree. This allows oak wilt to travel from an infected tree to another. Healthy, pruned trees are most at risk and the infection tends to happen right at the cut if it is not properly done an sealed.

If you need to prune an oak tree during these times, it's essential that the right professionals are called in to do the work for you. Specifically, it is important to use only a sterilized saw to cut on oak trees. It is also important that the new cuts are sealed properly to avoid any type of complication and transfer of the disease from one tree to the next.
