Spring is here, and trees and plants are blooming everywhere in Boerne and Kendall County! Did you know the City of Boerne has policies, protections, and ordinances to guard against oak wilt?
The City of Boerne does not plant red oaks or Spanish oaks on public property and discourages their planting on private property, as these varietals are particularly susceptible to oak wilt infection. The Arbor Day Foundation has recognized the City of Boerne as part of their Tree City USA program for excellence in urban forestry management for the past 8 years. If you have any questions regarding other tree policies and protections, please contact City of Boerne Community Services at (830) 248-1635.
