Dutch elm disease has strangled the life of more than 1,000,DOO Iowa elm trees since it was first found in the state in 1957. It continues its threat to the A* merican elm, the state's most widely used shade tree. No community or county is immune to its spread. Kossuth county's background and present position on Dutch Elm is this. I have submitted several samples a year in recent years to iowa State University at Ames which resembled Dutch Elm disease, but samples sent to Ames would be negative in laboratory culture tests. ' . ' IN AUGUST of this year David Smith, Algona city clerk, and I.again sent in suspect samples taken from city property near the Algona light plant. These, samples were cultured in Ames and the first case of Dutch Elm disease was located in Kossuth county. 1 Since then the diseased trees lave been cut down and destroyed by the city as recommended. Dutch Elm disease has also }een identified in West Bend by Palo Alto cates the county, disease which indi- is probably ground with the roots of a near' by tree. . Dutch elm disease can be controlled, with 10 year death losses held to about one-tenth of the elms. Without effective control measures, a community can fore' cast a loss of 99 per cent of its American elms. THREE VITAL STEPS are in volved in an effective control program: first, sanitation. That calls for immediate removal and destruction of dead and dying wood from diseased trees. Second, preventing root-graft transmission. This means apply ing a soil fumigant that will kill roots in the zone where they might grow together with those ot another tree. Third, control of the elm bark beetles. Chemicals are available that will kill the bark beetles to prevent their spread of the disease organism. One method is external spraying of the tree, with either of two chemicals, the chemicals kills the beetles when they crawl on the bark. The other method involves internal application of a chemical that kills the beetles when they eat into the wood of the treated tree. Specialists who have worked in control of the Dutch elm special county community quits prevalent in, the county. Dutch-elm disease is just what its' name'implies — a disease. The' disease agent is a fungus that grows in the vessels of the tree. These vessels carry vital water and nutrients from the soil to other parts of the tree. The disease fungus plugs these vessels, starving the tree to death. There is no known cure that Will save a tree once it is infected. THE DISEASE SPREADS from tree to tree in either or both of two ways. One way involves the transmission of the fungus from a dead or dying tree to healthy trees by elm bark beetles—there a/e two species. The other mechanism for spread is through "root grafts" — where roots of one tree grow together under- ease declare that a community action program affords the only realistic way to prevent and control the disease.'Equipment required involves an investment that is not realistic for an individual. Individual efforts may be of little value if the disease is not cpmbatted by the whole community. Without community- wide sanitation, the accumulation of dead and dying elm wood furnishes ideal development sites for the beetles; diseased trees continue ,the v spread through root-grafts. A state Dutch elm disease control advisory committee is spearheading a drive to help lowans become aware of the disease and the fact that it can be effectively controlled.
