Verticillium Wilt

Verticillium Wilt - https://mailchi.mp/unl.edu/nebraskas-forest-health-report-july-2019 Symptoms of Verticillium wilt are now becoming apparent in infected trees in the form of wilting and dying branches. This is most often seen in species of maple, elm, catalpa, and magnolia. The disease is caused by a fungal pathogen that lies dormant in the soil, often in pockets. If roots of a susceptible tree run into this…See More

Preventing Anthracnose and Apple Scab

Crabby Apples and Other ComplaintsWe waited a long time for summer to arrive this year, so it is unfair that some flowering crabapples are turning yellow and brown and shedding their leaves already. Mountain-ash, serviceberry, and hawthorn are also affected by the same disorder. Here and there a few maples and other species are also dropping random leaves, which are for the most part still green, often with patches of black or brown. The latter situation has a different origin, but both are…See More

Oak Wilt: You Can Make a Difference

Posted by Paul J Hetzler on June 29, 2019 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Oak Wilt

It’s hard to be cheerful in a job where I am expected to keep up on each newly arrived or imminent threat from invasive insects, novel plant diseases, and worrisome trends in the environment. Although I typically deflate everyone’s happy-bubble when I give a talk, I’ve discovered we need not fret that the sky is going to fall.

Healthy Forests, Healthy Fish

Fish Forestry

As many anglers know, trees and fish are closely related. Really; it goes way beyond basswood. The relationship is not in the sense of phylum or family, of course.

How tree diversity affects invasive forest pests

Started by Brett Chedzoy in Woodlot Management. Last reply by Brett Chedzoy Mar 27. 1 Reply

A long-standing tenet in forestry is that healthier and more diverse woods are typically more resilient to stress factors and pest.  This holds true in most cases, but there are the notable exceptions like EAB.This article from the "Morning Ag…Continue
