Problems with Dothistroma?

August 2005
New Zealand Tree Grower;Aug2005, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p35
This article discusses problems with the plant disease called Dothistroma. It generally shows up in younger radiata pine and is most prevalent in damper areas, or those sites that regularly have fog. The disease starts at the bottom of the tree and works its way up the foliage and across into other trees. Affected trees will be noticeable as the needles change colour going a brick red, and falling off. If you think there is a problem and need any assistance contact the New Zealand Dothistroma Control Committee.
