Oak Tree Fungal Disease Spreads To Brooklyn, Suffolk County
A devastating fungus disease that kills oak trees has been found in more places in New York state.
On Thursday, the DEC announced that the disease has been detected in Brooklyn and the Suffolk County towns of Babylon, Islip, Riverhead and Southold. It was also found in Canandaigua in Ontario County earlier this year.
Once the disease hits oak trees, they die and have to be cut down.December 31, 2016 12:16 PM
