Tree Disease Can Be Prevented By Acting Early

This American elm tree in Valley City was injected by Jay Cory, a licensed tree injector based out of Breckenridge, Minn. Injections done yearly help protect trees from disease.

Dunham said tree diseases for all species can be prevented at the start by avoiding planting the same trees right next to each other.
"The key is diversification," he said, explaining that planting a variety of tree species in an area prevents disease from spreading so easily.
