Author: Filer, Theodore H. Jr.;

Date: 1965

Source: Southern Lumberman December 15. 2 p.

Description: During the record drought that struck the Mid-south's hardwood forests in the early 1950's, a very conspicuous form of damage was top-kill of large, sycamore trees, Lack of moisture did not appear to be the direct cause, since on examination the dead and dying trees were found to have long, narrow cankers on the main stems and in the crowns
