Oak wilt is a common problem in Sherburne County but it is not the only tree disease which can have a negative impact on local woods and forests. Oak blight is a tree disease which resembles oak wilt to some extent. It only attacks burr oaks and is referred to by the arborist community as BOB.

GRAND KNIGHT DENNIS NAGORSKI of the Knights of Columbus presented Big Lake Chief of Police Joel Scharf and Becker Chief of Police Brent Baloun with a donation of prescription drug drop-boxes for each city. Along with marijuana, prescription drugs are often abused because of easy access. Keeping them out of the water system is important to protect the environment. Now our residents have a safe way to dispose of their unwanted or out-dated medications. (Photo by Jennifer Edwards).
