 Laurel Wilt Found in Bluewater Bay

Trees infected with Laurel Wilt have been found in Bluewater Bay. These trees have been infested with an Ambrosia Beetle which attacks the tree and causes it to die. Infected trees should be cut down and chipped on site. Transporting infected trees will spread the disease which is discouraged by the county arborist. For more information visit freshfromflorida.com or contact Okaloosa County Extension Agent, Sheila Dunning, 850-689-5850, for information on the proper removal of the trees.
