The Somervell County Master Gardeners Association (SCMGA) will discuss oak wilt at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 14, at the Somervell County Citizens Center as part of their educational lecture series.

Monty Swatzel, a Johnson County Master Gardener, will discuss the devastating tree disease that severely affects Red Oak and Live Oak trees around the state.

Come and learn what measures you can take to avoid losing some of our most beautiful and precious trees, and what to do if you suspect you may already be affected.

The event is free and open to the public.
