Bur Oak Blight (BOB), causal agent Tubakia iowensis, is a severe fungal pest of bur oak, which can kill the tree. First described and observed in Iowa it has been a waiting game for it to come to Northern Illinois. Disease spread is favored by wet conditions in the spring, which we have had the last few years. There is now a lab confirmed case in McHenry County. Come observe the symptoms, learn about the life cycle of the disease, specifics about the host preference, and the most recent management suggestions.

If the weather does not cooperate, we have permission to use the inside space.
