They are susceptible to a root fungus (Hypoxylon) that appears around the base of the tree as a black, crusty growth. Root Rot By: Janna Beckerman, “We never look deeply into the quality of a tree; we never really touch it, feel its solidity, its rough bark, and hear the sound that is part of the tree. This tree is a U.S. native that is widely distributed throughout the east and midwest. In addition, it also can infect Acacia confusa Merr (Dou et al. Although sugar hackberry has been used as a street tree in many cities in the South, its use has been banned by other cities because of problems with trunk rot. After 20 days, eight seedlings inoculated Ls7 isolate showed disease symptoms similar to those that appeared in the field, including local, spindle-shaped necrosis and slightly concave red-brown spots (approximately 25 mm × 5 mm) (Fig. According to the ITS sequence, Ls1 –Ls7 types were identified as Fusarium tricinctum (2%), Diaporthe spp. This study may provide reference value for the prevention of Chinese hackberry canker.

One suspect is root rot. All monocots, such as palms, yuccas, agaves and grasses are immune and are good choices to plant anywhere that Texas root rot has been observed. It is also known as the nettletree, sugarberry, beaverwood, northern hackberry, and American hackberry. If left untreated it will cause rapid decline and death. 3a). The objectives of this study were to: (1) discover the epidemiology of canker occurring on Chinese hackberry; (2) prove the pathogenicity of the fungal pathogen using Koch’s Postulates Test; and (3) identify the causal agent using morphological and molecular techniques. The university does not review, control or take responsibility for the contents of those sites. It is a moderately long-lived hardwood with a light-colored wood, yellowish gray to light brown with yellow streaks.. Many fungi are capable of causing root rots and some cause considerable decay of the butts of trees as well. Root rots are more common on older trees or trees which have sustained root or basal injury. a Stem blotch and canker in the beginning. Worldwide, this species has a wide range.
