Incidence and Management of Canker Stain in London Plane Trees in Modesto, California    (View PDF)

Ed Perry and Arthur H. McCain

Abstract: London Plane trees in Modesto, California, are seriously threatened by canker stain, a fungus disease that has destroyed many plane trees in the eastern and southern United States. Current efforts to prevent the spread of the disease in park and street trees include the experimental use of the fungicide thiabendazole. Chemical disinfection of tools is also used when pruning plane trees. In some cases, healthy trees bordering infected trees are removed to prevent disease spread by root grafts.
