Host Richard Hentschel continues the discussion of diseases that have plagued northern Illinois during 2014. Richard asked guest Jim Schuster to talk about Oak Wilt and Bacterial Leaf Scorch. Oak wilt can cause the death of certain oaks within one season and streaking appears in the sapwood. Bacterial leaf scorch shows up in the canopy attacking individual branches.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
