Elm-tree spraying to take place at University Park

May 15, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Elm-tree spraying on Penn State's University Park campus will be conducted from the ground beginning at 9 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, and will continue until about 7 a.m. on Monday, May 20, weather permitting.

The Office of Physical Plant conducts spraying each summer in an effort to slow the spread of both Dutch elm disease and Elm yellows, and to protect the remaining iconic elms at University Park. OPP thanks the campus community for understanding the need and cooperating with this important program aimed at preserving the campus’ elm trees.

For questions, contact Susan Bedsworth in Penn State’s Office of Physical Plant at sjb5001@psu.edu or 814-863-9620.
