The destructive tree disease oak wilt has left an unfortunate and indelible mark on the Dripping Springs tree population and our landscape. Many new Central Texas residents (as well as old-timers) are not aware of their ability to stop (and spread) the epidemic that has killed more than 1 million trees in 70 Central Texas counties. Tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, the City of Dripping Springs is having a "Managing Oak Wilt" seminar. If you have any questions about whether your trees are at risk for oak wilt, how oak wilt is spread, and how to prevent it, this free seminar presented by Texas Forest Service Staff Forester, Eric Beckers would be the time to get answers.

Date: Tuesday, January 13
Time: 5:30PM
Location: City Hall (511 Mercer Street)
