Title: Sulfuryl fluoride fumigation of red oak logs eradicates the oak wilt fungus

Author: Schmidt, Elmer L.; Juzwik, Jennifer; Schneider, Brian;

Date: 1997

Source: Holz als Roh- und Werkstoff 55:315-318

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Preliminary field trials using red oak logs from trees dying from oak wilt disease were successful in eliminating oak wilt fungus from sapwood after fumigation with sulfuryl fluoride for 72 h under tarp. These results support earlier laboratory data on the fungitoxicity of sulfuryl fluoride as a potential replacement for methyl bromide of exported red oak veneer logs. However, not all other microorganisms were completely eradicated from oak sapwood at the treatment levels used in this trial.
