Description: Oak wilt, caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fagacearum (Bretz) J. Hunt, is an important disease of oaks (Quercus spp.) in the eastern United States. It has been particularly destructive in the North Central states and Texas. Oak wilt is one of several significant oak diseases that threaten oak health worldwide. The significant gains made in our knowledge of the biology and epidemiology of this vascular wilt disease during the past six decades has led to development of various management strategies.
