Title: Oak wilt: a potential threat to southern and western oak forests

Author: Wilson, A. Dan;

Date: 2001

Source: Journal of Forestry. 99(5): 4-11

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Oak wilt is recognized as one of the most destructive diseases to afflict oak species in the United States. The distribution and development of oak wilt in our eastern and midwestern oak forests has been closely linked to changes in forest stand composition, forest management practices, and pathogen dissemination facilitated by human and vector activity. The potential for oak wilt to spread into southern and western States and its possible impacts are discussed. The Texas experience with an oak wilt epidemic provides useful perspectives and suppression alternatives for other States not yet touched by this malady.
