UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TREE DISEASES CAUSED BY FUNGI AND BACTERIA TOGETHER

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TREE DISEASES CAUSED BY FUNGI AND BACTERIA TOGETHER

Most plant diseases – around 85% – are caused by fungal or fungal-like organisms. However, other serious diseases of food and feed crops are caused by viral and bacterial organisms. Certain nematodes also cause plant disease. Some plant diseases are classified as “abiotic,” or diseases that are non-infectious and include damage from air pollution, nutritional deficiencies or toxicities, and grow under less than optimal conditions. For now, we’ll look at diseases caused by the three main pathogenic microbes: fungus, bacteria and virus. If plant disease is suspected, careful attention to plant appearance can give a good clue regarding the type of pathogen involved.

A sign of plant disease is physical evidence of the pathogen. For example, fungal fruiting bodies are a sign of disease. When you look at powdery mildew on a lilac leaf, you’re actually looking at the parasitic fungal disease organism itself (Microsphaera alni). Bacterial canker of stone fruits causes gummosis, a bacterial exudate emerging from the cankers. The thick, liquid exudate is primarily composed of bacteria and is a sign of the disease, although the canker itself is composed of plant tissue and is a symptom.

A symptom of plant disease is a visible effect of disease on the plant. Symptoms may include a detectable change in color, shape or function of the plant as it responds to the pathogen. Leaf wilting is a typical symptom of verticilium wilt, caused by the fungal plant pathogens Verticillium albo-atrum and V. dahliae. Common bacterial blight symptoms include brown, necrotic lesions surrounded by a bright yellow halo at the leaf margin or interior of the leaf on bean plants. You are not actually seeing the disease pathogen, but rather a symptom that is being caused by the pathogen.

Here are a few examples of common signs and symptoms of fungal, bacterial and viral plant diseases:

Causes & Classifications Of Tree Diseases

A tree disease suggests any deviation or malfunctioning due to a persistent agent. There exist about a hundred diseases for each of thousands of plant species, with different triggers.

Causes

There are abiotic and biotic inducers (non-living and living). Biotic diseases are further grouped according to the pathogen type (bacteria, fungi, viruses, phytoplasmas, nematodes, etc.).

Here it should be noted that in most cases, pathogens are parasites. However, not each pathogen is a parasite, and not each parasite is a pathogen. Thus, some parasites cause no harm to plants and, correspondingly, don’t provoke any diseases. On the contrary, parasites may be beneficial. Also, some earth-dwelling bacteria don’t parasite on plants but produce harmful toxins that trigger tree root diseases.

Classifications

The most common classifications base on the following parameters:

Tree disease identification takes into account signs and symptoms. Signs are changes produced by pathogen tissues (e.g., white rust). Symptoms are how plants suffer from infections (e.g., defoliation, crown thinning, decay, wilt, etc.). Using change detection technology, foresters can understand when woods are stressed.

Tree Leaves Disease

As the name suggests, these affect foliage. The main culprits of foliar infections are fungi. However, signs and symptoms can be similar to chemical injury of insect infestations, which complicates tree leaf disease identification and the choice of corresponding management. The problem eradication strongly depends on the reasonability of treatment costs and is not always possible due to favorable weather conditions for fungi development. In this regard, the most typical method of foliar tree disease treatment is removing and destroying the leaves in the fall. It prevents pathogen overwintering and relapse in spring.

Tree leaf diseases affect both conifers and hardwoods and differ by the degree of severity. While some cause little harm, the rest are rather dangerous and can cause mortality.

Pine Needle Diseases

Conifer foliage infections are typical but rarely represent a serious threat. Thus, in most cases, they don’t require treatment unless merchantability is in question. This refers to ornamental and Christmas trees, and spraying is the common method to defeat the pathogen colonization. In large forests, it is rarely implemented though due to a lack of feasibility and necessity. Generally, there are three types of pine needle diseases: needle rusts, casts, and blights.

Needle Rusts

Needle rust covers the needles and refers to the least dangerous coniferous tree diseases.

Needle Casts

Needle cast fungi grow inside the needles forming long hysterothecia and typically cause defoliation (or casts, hence, the name derives). Depending on the pathogens, there distinguished lophodermium, elytroderma, rhabdocline casts, and many more. About forty pathogenic genera cause this tree disease in the US.

Needle Blights

Needle blight is also an infection inside the needle that causes its partial death. The most common types of tree diseases in this category include snow, brown felt, brown spot, and red band needle blights.

Sooty Mold

It is a soot-like substance on the leaves due to insects’ honeydew secretion. This condition is not a disease since fungi dwell in honeydew without penetrating the plant, yet the black sooty covering severely reduces Christmas tree merchantability. It is typical for the northeastern regions of the USA and affects different pine species.

Hardwood Leaf Diseases

Most infections of hardwood species are also caused by fungi, with no specific tree diseases treatment. Common management suggests removing and destroying contaminated leaves.

Anthracnose

The anthracnose infection reveals leaf necrosis of irregular shapes and burnt foliage that may also affect stems. This is a fungal pathology that may cause severe damage, yet it is difficult to tackle, especially in wet spring weather favorable for fungi development.

Leaf Rusts

Leaf rusts are among common tree diseases and are typically non-dangerous unless they cause early leaf sheds and, thus, negatively impact growth. Rusts are yellowish spots with powdery spores on the upper leaf part. Typically, rusts cover hosts in the second part of August and affect maple, birch, poplar, ash, plum, willow, and cottonwood.

Leaf Spots

These tree diseases are infections in the form of spots, most of the brownish color. They are caused by some fungi species (like Actinopelte, Septoria, Mycoshaerella, Phyllosticta) and parasitic algae. Cool wet springs are particularly favorable for the infection spread. Poplar hybrids are especially prone to leaf spot infestations.

Tar Spot

This tree leaves disease is usually caused by the Rhytisma fungi colonizing the maple family (maple proper and sycamore). The symptoms start as yellow-green or light green spots in late spring-early summer with added tar-like formations by the late summer. Even though they don’t kill the trees, they cause leaves sheds, which may affect the plant development. The infection is common in the northeastern part of the USA. If the fallen contaminated leaves are not removed in the fall, a new cycle will start next season.

Powdery Mildew

The signs of this tree leaf disease look exactly like white talcum powder. It should be distinguished from dust or bird droppings. It spreads in spots or patches and is mainly induced by the Microsphaera fungi. Unlike other fungi infections, it particularly persists in hot dry weather and colonizes succulent plants. The most common treatment is chemical control.

Leaf Blister

In this case, leaves are infected by the Taphrina genus that causes additional growth of the contaminated area (blisters, curling, expansion, puckering). The pathology starts with light green spots that acquire a white coating and eventually become brown. This tree disease is frequently found in the oak family, peaches, female catkins, and alder. It develops under cool wet weather conditions at the stage of leaf expansion. Leaf blisters do not result in defoliation and do not produce a serious impact on the suffering plant.

Tree Bark Disease

Stem pathologies are typically induced by fungi like leaf ones. However, these are more serious, depending on what part is affected. Tree branch diseases have less severe consequences for the plant since the infected branch can be removed. Little can be done with tree trunk diseases though when fungi reach the vascular system, the host dies.

Rusts

Rust is among the most common evergreen tree diseases, in Arkansas pines in particular. It is especially dangerous and can be lethal for young samples due to trunk galls. Mature plants can live with that as long as only branches are infected, and the disease does not destroy the central stem.

Black Knots

The black knot is a fungal pathology typical for the genus of Prunus, fruit and ornamental cherries, and plums in particular. This tree bark skin disease is caused by Apiosporina morbosa that may dwell on the host plant for several years. Black knots start as greenish-brown and brown formations (swellings) during the first year that grow into black hard galls during the second one. After two or three years, mature galls usually die and turn whitish or pinkish due to fungi colonization. Such galls can be numerous on a tree, and this is a danger.

The fungi spores spread to new branches in wet mild weather. The treatment includes chemical or mechanical control (fungicide spraying or pruning, correspondingly). The removed branches must be instantly destroyed because the spores continue to release up to four months. This tree branch disease becomes lethal when it reaches vital stem parts.

Cankers

Canker is a tree bark disease with necrotic areas. It occurs due to pathogenic fungi (e.g., Botryosphaeria, Hypoxylon, Phytophthora, Botryosphaeria, Cytospora) that penetrate through bark cracks or mechanical and natural injures (e.g., man-made wounds, frost cracks, fire burns, sunscalds). Healthy plants cope with the infestation, yet weakened ones cannot resist it.

The consequences may be different. In some cases, cankers only weaken the infected hosts. In others, multiple cankers kill them. Chemical treatment is not effective in this case. Pruning is the common method when infected branches have to be removed. However, the whole tree is cut if there are cankers on the stem.

Decays

This tree disease diagnosis is pretty simple – typically, it is identified through mushrooms (aka conks) covering the tree and discolored bark. The conks develop for many years before they can be noticed. They penetrate the plant through wounds and are located deep inside. For this reason, simple conk removal won’t solve the problem. Instead, the host can combat the conks itself thanks to compartmentalization. It is a natural process to release chemical compounds to get rid of the fungi as well as to plug the vascular tissue and generate callus. The success depends on the fungi’ ability to adjust to the change and the host’s health. Decays are not lethal, but they do weaken the plant and spoil the timber salability. In severe cases, such trees are omitted during timber harvesting operations, as they lose their economic value.

Wilts

Wilt is a lethal tree trunk disease that is diagnosed through burnt leaves with no defoliation. The plant dies due to fungi inside its vessels that hinder crown water saturation. Susceptible species include mimosa, oak, Dutch elm, and more.

Tree Root Disease

Tree root diseases affect the root and lower stem of both evergreen and hardwood species. Compared to leaf and bark infections, they have the highest tree mortality rates since they prevent water and nutrient absorption by the plant. Also, as it develops in the unseen tree part, it remains undetected until the damage becomes visible. Thus, it is more difficult to diagnose tree root diseases.

Pine Root Diseases

The most common root infections in conifers are annosum root rot, loblolly pine decline, and littleleaf disease.

Annosum Root Rot

This pathology is typical for Arkansas pines and widely spreads on sandy soils. It occurs due to the fungus Heterobasion annosum that generates sponge-resembling formations (hence the other disease name – root sponge). It gets into the host through fresh cuts and wounds and then attacks the roots.

These varieties have been specifically bred to withstand and combat diseases such as bacterial canker. Some examples of disease-resistant tree species include the Liberty apple, which is resistant to apple scab and fire blight, and the Emerald Green arborvitae, which is resistant to multiple diseases, including bacterial canker. To ensure the success of these disease-resistant trees, proper soil preparation techniques should be employed. This includes removing any remaining roots or debris from the previous tree, amending the soil with organic matter, and ensuring proper drainage. By selecting disease-resistant plant varieties and employing effective soil preparation techniques, you can establish a healthier and more resilient landscape. Now, let’s delve into the important considerations for soil health.

Soil Health Considerations

Now that you have considered disease-resistant plant varieties, it is important to focus on the health of your soil before planting. Soil testing is a crucial step in this process. By analyzing your soil’s nutrient levels and pH, you can determine its fertility and make informed decisions about which plants will thrive. Additionally, soil testing can help identify any deficiencies or imbalances that may have contributed to the bacterial canker in your previous tree. Once you have the results, you can take steps to improve your soil’s health. One effective approach is to use organic fertilizers, which provide nutrients while also enhancing the soil’s structure and promoting beneficial microbial activity. With a well-balanced and fertile soil, you can create an optimal environment for your new plants to grow and thrive. Now, let’s explore some routines for maintaining a healthy garden.

Routines

You should establish new planting routines to prevent the spread of bacterial canker after tree removal. Incorporating new habits and secrets into your routine will help ensure the health and well-being of your future plantings. When it comes to preventing the spread of bacterial canker, there are several key factors to consider.

Firstly, it is essential to remove all infected plant material and debris from the area. This includes not only the tree itself, but also any fallen leaves or branches that may harbor the bacteria. Proper disposal of this material is crucial to prevent further contamination.

Next, you should thoroughly clean and disinfect any tools or equipment used during the removal process. Bacterial canker can easily be spread from one plant to another through contaminated tools, so it is important to take the necessary precautions.

Another important routine to establish is regular monitoring and inspection of your new plantings. By keeping a close eye on the health of your plants, you can quickly identify any signs of bacterial canker and take appropriate action.

Pros and Cons

Consider the advantages and disadvantages of different planting options to ensure the long-term success of your garden. When deciding what to plant after tree removal, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of each option. One option is to replant another tree in the same spot. The advantage of this is that it can maintain the aesthetic appeal of your garden and provide shade and habitat for wildlife. However, the disadvantage is that if the previous tree had bacterial canker, there is a risk that the new tree could also be affected. Another option is to choose a different type of plant, such as shrubs or flowers. The advantage of this is that it can add variety and color to your garden. However, the disadvantage is that it may not provide the same level of shade or habitat as a tree. Ultimately, the decision on what to plant will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Now, let’s explore some dos and don’ts to ensure the success of your garden.

Dos and Dont’s

It’s important to be aware of the dos and don’ts when deciding what to plant in your garden. To help you make informed choices and prevent any mistakes, here are some key tips to keep in mind:

Dos Don’ts
Consider your climate Overlook soil conditions
Choose disease-resistant varieties Plant susceptible plants
Plan for proper spacing Overcrowd your garden
Rotate crops to prevent disease Plant the same crop in the same spot year after year
Use organic fertilizers and pest control methods Rely solely on chemical pesticides

By following these dos and avoiding the don’ts, you can greatly increase your chances of success in your garden. Taking into account your climate and soil conditions will ensure that you select plants that will thrive in your specific environment. Opting for disease-resistant varieties will help protect your garden from potential issues. Proper spacing and crop rotation will prevent overcrowding and the spread of diseases. Using organic fertilizers and pest control methods will promote a healthy and sustainable garden.

Now that you know the dos and don’ts, let’s move on to the mistakes to avoid when deciding what to plant in your garden.

Mistakes to Avoid

Now that we’ve covered the dos and don’ts of gardening, let’s discuss some common mistakes to avoid when deciding what to plant. One of the biggest mistakes people make is not properly considering tree selection. When choosing what to plant, it’s important to research and select trees that are well-suited to your specific climate, soil type, and available space. Failure to do so can result in poor growth, disease susceptibility, and even death of the tree.

Another mistake to avoid is not taking preventative measures to protect your trees from pests and diseases. It’s essential to regularly inspect your trees for signs of infestation or disease and take immediate action to prevent further damage. This can include applying appropriate insecticides or fungicides, implementing proper pruning techniques, and maintaining good tree health through proper watering and fertilization.

By avoiding these common mistakes, you can ensure that your tree selection is appropriate for your garden and take preventative measures to keep them healthy. Understanding the importance of these factors will help you make informed decisions and set your garden up for success.

Now, let’s move on to the key takeaways from this discussion on tree selection and preventative measures.

Key Takeaways

To summarize, the key takeaways from this discussion are that proper research and selection of trees suited to your climate and space, along with regular inspection and preventative measures against pests and diseases, are essential for maintaining healthy trees in your garden. When it comes to disease-resistant plants, it is crucial to choose varieties that have been bred or selected for their ability to resist common diseases, such as bacterial canker. These plants have built-in mechanisms that help them fight off infections and reduce the risk of spreading diseases in your garden.

In addition to selecting disease-resistant plants, preparing the soil properly is another important step in maintaining healthy trees. This involves assessing the soil’s pH, nutrient levels, and drainage capacity. By making necessary amendments and improvements, you can create a favorable environment for your trees to thrive. This also includes providing adequate water and mulching to retain moisture and protect the roots.

Specific Action Steps for Tree Replacement After Bacterial Cankor

When selecting disease-resistant tree options for replacement, it is important to consider the specific pathogens that caused the bacterial canker in the previous tree. Consult with a local arborist or horticulturist who can provide expert advice on suitable tree species that are resistant to those pathogens. Additionally, proper soil preparation techniques, such as amending the soil with organic matter and ensuring proper drainage, will create a favorable environment for the new tree to establish and thrive. Lastly, long-term tree care, including regular pruning, adequate watering, and monitoring for any signs of disease, will help maintain the health and vitality of the newly planted tree.

Disease-Resistant Tree Options

Consider planting disease-resistant trees, such as the Bradford pear or the London plane, after removing the tree affected by bacterial canker. Disease-resistant tree selection is crucial to prevent the recurrence of bacterial canker. The Bradford pear (Pyrus calleryana) is a popular choice due to its resistance to diseases and its beautiful white flowers in spring. Another option is the London plane (Platanus x acerifolia), which has a strong resistance to bacterial canker and can tolerate various soil conditions. When planting disease-resistant trees, it is important to follow proper planting techniques. Dig a hole that is wider and shallower than the root ball, ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with the ground. Backfill the hole with a mixture of soil and compost, gently firming it around the roots. Water the tree thoroughly after planting to help it establish. Now, let’s move on to soil preparation techniques.

Soil Preparation Techniques

Proper soil preparation techniques are essential for successful planting of disease-resistant trees. Before you start planting, it is important to assess your soil conditions. Conduct a soil test to determine the pH level and nutrient content of your soil. Based on the results, you may need to amend the soil with organic matter or fertilizers to provide optimal conditions for tree growth. It is also crucial to ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot. Consider the specific requirements of the disease-resistant tree options you have chosen and adjust your soil preparation accordingly. By properly preparing your soil, you will create an environment that promotes healthy tree growth and resistance to diseases. Now, let’s move on to long-term tree care, where you will learn how to maintain the health and vigor of your planted trees.

Long-Term Tree Care

Now that you have planted disease-resistant trees, it’s important to understand how to care for them in the long term. Long term care is crucial for maintaining the health and vitality of your trees. Regular maintenance and monitoring are essential to ensure that your trees remain strong and resilient. Pruning is a key aspect of long term tree care, as it helps to remove diseased or dead branches, promoting healthy growth. Adequate watering and fertilization are also important to provide the necessary nutrients for growth and to prevent stress. Additionally, it’s important to be vigilant for any signs of disease or pests and take appropriate action promptly. If, despite your efforts, a tree becomes severely damaged or diseased, it may be necessary to consider tree replacement to maintain the overall health and aesthetics of your landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Replant a Tree in the Same Spot Where a Tree Affected by Bacterial Canker Was Removed?
