Description of Original
35mm slide
  • From approximately 1977-1986, Virginia Kline, Arboretum staff and volunteers conducted an experiment using a local strain of oak wilt fungus to kill black oak trees invading a remnant dry prairie on Grady Knoll. While this technique was effective, it was labor intensive; a burn regime was deemed to be a more efficient use of limited labor.
