Help Save Norwalk's Citrus Trees
Portions of Norwalk are under quarantine, which means citrus plants can't be sold within the area, and citrus plants or plant cuttings shouldn't leave the quarantine area.
HLB is not harmful to humans or animals, but it kills citrus trees. There is no cure for the disease, and, once infected, trees must be removed to prevent the disease from spreading in the community. While researchers are looking for a cure to HLB, right now the best way to protect against the disease is to stop the pest that can infect citrus trees.
