Elm tree spraying to take place July 16 and 17 on University Park campus

July 12, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State will conduct elm tree spraying from the ground at 9 p.m. on Monday, July 16, weather permitting, on the University Park campus. Spraying will also be conducted by helicopter from 5:30 to 7 a.m. on Tuesday, July 17, also weather permitting. Signage will be posted in affected areas.

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 on the University Park campus. OPP thanks the campus community for understanding the need and cooperating with this important program aimed at preserving the campus’ elm trees.

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