    That's really bad news. We have millions of oak trees here not to mention lots of gardens and landscaped properties. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the warning.

    Within less than a year, the CT agency in charge of responding to this kind of thing went from trying to track every potential host plant brought into the state to throwing their hands up and hoping for the best. Too many plants were brought in and no one knows who ended up with them.

    To me it sounds like Oak Wilt that they are talking about. Which has been around for awhile now. There are parks around here that have no oaks left in the entire park.

    Here is alittle more info. http://www.na.fs.fed.us/spfo/pubs/ho...akwilt/toc.htm
