DescriptionAttempts to control oak wilt, ranging from relatively smallscale experiments to statewide programs, have been made in many States. Among the few currently active, those of Pennsylvania and West Virginia are notable for their size and duration. The pest-control organizations of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the West Virginia Department of Agriculture have vigorously pursued well-organized statewide oak wilt control programs in their respective States for more than 15 years. Further, these organizations, in cooperation with the Northeastern Area Branch of State and Private Forestry and the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station of the USDA Forest Service, have, since 1958, conducted special studies to measure the effectiveness of these control efforts. This is a report on the results of those studies through 1968.
