 Important Notice: 

New Tree Disease Alert:

Two Oak trees on a vacant lot in Unit 6 have died from a disease called Hypoxylon Canker.  This is not just an Oak tree issue since this is a fungus that can kill many different trees.  Learn more about it at this Texas A & M site and note that more information is found at a link near the bottom of the article to the Texas Forestry Service.  Based on information in this article, we may want to paint cuts on all types of trees.
