Cutting away in Boca Tree cutter Jose Ricardo Castellon and co-worker Marvin Vanegas work at cutting an orange tree in the 1300 block of SW 13 place in Boca Raton. The tree was within 1,900 feet of a canker-infected tree. The Department of Agriculture has been scrambling for about a month to come up with a more accurate way to determine which citrus trees are within 1,900 feet of trees infected with citrus canker -- and thus, according to the agency, at risk of catching the disease.
