Edwina Scott, executive director of the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council, was happy to share this photo of a local black oak and the cooperation from the community. “Here is an old black oak that has died and has the diagnostic D-shaped exit holes of the adult Golden-spotted oak borer. Note the dead, brown leaves still attached to the lower branches. This tree was reported to [the MCFSC GSOB team] first, by Steve Taylor, a representative of the Realtors, as well as by Janice Fast, a member of the Woodies. Thanks to their vigilance, this tree has been reported to MCFSC who will report it to Cal Fire and the scientists at UCR who will then contact the property owner again with the results and together decide how to most safely deal with the suspect, infested, dead tree,” wrote photographer Doris Lombard.
