Shade Tree Wilt Diseases

A compilation of research and applied information from recognized plant pathology and forestry experts on wilt diseases.

Item No. 42775

Learn to diagnose and manage wilt diseases with Shade Tree Wilt Diseases. Extensive coverage of oak wilt and Dutch elm disease is provided, as well as information on other important diseases associated with the vascular tissue of woody plants including Verticillium wilt, bacterial leaf scorch, pine wilt, watermark disease, and yellows disease.

Based on the recent Shade Tree Wilt Diseases conference held in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, this book is a compilation of research and applied information from recognized plant pathology and forestry experts. To make identification easier, common symptoms are supported in 36 color photographs. Hard-to-find information on less common wilt diseases is also available. A chapter examining anatomy and physiology provides a helpful introduction or review on understanding wilt diseases.

In addition to up-to-date, in depth research on wilt diseases affecting shade trees and other woody plants, this book is further enhanced with:

  • examples of disease control and education programs
  • insights from a lawyer/tree enthusiast on motivating citizens in support of disease management programs
  • a chapter on root collar excavations that photographically details below ground root examination

Plant pathologists, forestry professionals, arborists, extension professionals, master gardeners, turf and grounds landscapers, golf course superintendents, educators, and students will find the valuable information provided in Shade Tree Wilt Diseases useful in maintaining healthy shade trees and woody plants.
