The Oregon Departments of Agriculture and Forestry (ODA, ODF), the USDA Forest Service (USFS), and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced on August 10 that Sudden Oak Death disease has been discovered in tanoak trees in the Brookings area of Oregon. The disease has decimated coastal California forests since it was first detected there in 1995. An ODA quarantine forbidding importation of tanoak, black oak, coast live oak and other host plants from areas of California infected with the disease, has been extended to southwest Oregon and to a number of other tree species. Details of the quarantine are available on the ODA website:
