Dutch Elm Decease

Asked July 17, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

Some of my neighbors have lost trees to Dutch Elm mine still looks good. Is there something we can do to save the trees? A tree man told us that nurseries carry something to treat them. I'm hoping you may have some input. Thanks for your help.

Note the section on prevention.of the disease. You may also wish to contact your county extension office for their input on pesticide treatment.

I hope this is helpful.
