Goldspotted Oak Borer Resources

The Goldspotted oak borer which devastated oak trees in San Diego County has arrived in Idyllwild. It could impact land and home values by killing our oak trees. Learn about this pest and what you can do to help keep it from spreading. The Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council, the U.S. Forest Service, CAL FIRE, UC Riverside and the Idyllwild Garden Club are working together to develop a large volunteer effort and a plan to keep this pest from destroying our oak trees and spreading. It is critical that oak fire wood not be transported up the Hill or taken from the Hill. For in depth information go to the following web sites:
