Pine Wilt: A Fatal Disease of Exotic Pines in the Midwest

Editor's note
The following abstract describes a publication that is intended for print distribution or as a downloadable PDF. Please see links to the PDF file and ordering information on this page.

Pines have earned a secure niche in America's urban landscape, thanks to their diversity, adaptability and beauty. Over the past 20 years, however, a disease called pine wilt has killed so many Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) in the Midwest that extension specialists in several states no longer recommend planting this once-popular species as a landscape tree.

Keywords
