Heterobasidion Root Disease Prevention

On 11/15/2012, Forest Supervisor Paul Strong decided to allow borax treatment of cut conifer stumps to prevent the spread of Heterobasidion root disease (HRD). Borax treatments may be prescribed on a case-by-case basis if conditions fall within the guidelines outlined in the HRD Decision Notice. Notice of this decision was published in the Northwoods River News (Rhinelander) on 11/24/2012.
