GARDEN GOSSIP •» HmM ELM TREE DISEASES Elm Phloem Necrosis and Dutch Elm disease are two separate elm tree diseases which have come to our attention so many times these last few months that we. feel it necessary to write an article on it this week. These are not new diseases. They have been with us now over 25 years, but we are just now fedling the full brunt of this great killer of trees. The Dutch Elm disease was brought to the United States from Europe in imported elm logs. This disease is caused by a fungus and commonly spread by the breeding and feeding habits of the European bark beetle. The Elm phloem necrosis is a disease that is caused by a virus and is spread by a leaf* hopper. As for the varices of Elm trpes not affected by any elm disease, we have the Chinese elm and the Siberian eli.i, plus three or four of the newer hybrids. Elm phloem necrosis can be identified by stripping a small piece of bark from the basal area and check the color, healthy wood is white, while diseased wood is butterscotch yellow, sometimes flecked with brown or black. If this discoloration is located, try this little experiment. Strip a small piece of the inner bark and cup it tightly in your hand for a few seconds. Then release your hand and smell the wood. It will have a faint odor of wintergreen. * * * If you decide that the disease is not Phloem,necrosis, then it probably is Dutch Elm disease which is caused by a fungus. In order to check this disease, cut or break off several branches that have wilted, or are yellow or drying leaves. If the wood in cross section reveals brown spots or discoloration in the annual rings, the disease is probably Dutch Elm disease. Your trees can have both ol these elm diseases at once and again bnlh diseases are spread by insects. In the case oLthe Dutch Elm disease the fungus is carried on the beetle, known as Scolytus multistriatus. This beetle feeds In the crotches making small holes, and the fungus is introduced at this point. The Elm phloem necrosis is spread by the leafhopper known as Scaphoideus luteolus. This leafhopper feeds on the under side of the elm leaves, sucking out the leaf juices and the damaging virus is introduced into the tree at this time. * # * As you have already guessed, by spraying these trees often enough you can delay the insect attack and eventual death of these fine trees for many years, but most home owners and cities do not have the kind of a budget that will permit this kind of treatment, so to do the most constructive thing possible we ad- vjse this: Spray if you can. Remove and burn all dead and dying limbs and twigs. Plant new trees in anticipation that some day you may lose all of your elms.
