10- The Sidney Herald, Sidne),, Mont., Wed., April 11, 1973 NEWS NOTES from Your County Extension Agent ELLIS E. WILLIAMS Montana State University, Bozeman JERRY SCHAEFER Cooperative Extension Service ELM DISEASE Dutch Elm disease, which has virtually eliminated American elm trees in many states during the last few decades, has been found for the first time in Montana. The disease previously had t.n found in the border states of Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota. Dr. l,arry Claflin, plant pathologist at Montana State University, who previously worked with Dutch Elm disease several years in Kansas, confirmed presence of the fungus f Ceratocystis ulmi) in a s4"Ae from an American elm in Missoula. "It is likely that Dutch Elm disease could spread over Montana," Claflin said. However, it took the parasite about 15 years to cross Kansas, and re,naval of diseased trees, wherever found, can be ef- feetive in checking its spread. The first symptons of Dutch Elm disease are yellowing, wilting and in'owning of leaves on individual branches, which eventually may die. Stripping the lmrk reveals brown streaks in the .,mpwood of branches. The only positive method of diagnosis is plating out wood- chip .mples on agar and identifying the fungus with a micToscopc. a'ead of the fungus parasite up and clown the tree from initial point of infection can be extremely rapid. Dutch Elm disease can "completely devastate" n tree within two weeks. Dutch Elm disease results from an unusual partnership between a fungus and host insects ( European and Amcrican Elm lmrk beetles}. Although the fungus alone "lae tiny, thack beetle ( about one-fourth inch long) lays eggs Itween the lmrk and woody tissues of weakened or dead elm trees. The eggs soon hatch and larvae make definite (but not always recognizable) patterns of "tracks" as they feed outward. After the larvae pupate to form young adult beetles they .atter to feed on elm wood ti,sue, usually in the crotches of smaller twigs. If the larvae were feeding on diseased wood the beetles carry fungal spores to infect other trees. Early attempts to control l)utch Elm disease hy spraying elm tmrk beetles with in- secticides primarily I)DTI were mostly unsuccessful. Removal and burning of lisead trees is the most ef- fective control for Dutch Elm disease. Benomyl, a fungicide, in me cas has given about per cent successful control, but is too c)stly for large areas. Nothing should be clone with trees suspected of having Dutch Elm disease until it is positively identified. Then the infected tree should be removed and burned im- mccliately. No elm tree wood should be salvaged or kept for fireplace burning or any other purpose because the beetles prefer to lay eggs in diseased or dca(I chn wood. Methoychlor sprays can reduce the beetle population when used on a community - wide basis. Some spread of Dutch Elm di.zasc occurs through root :rafL Itween diseased and healthy trc's. It is possible to trench I.,twc:n trees and treat with Vapam. but this is stly and a job for experts. Chinese (Siberian) elms and mc other chn species are satisfactory control. People who have observed wilting in branches of American elm trees shouhl bring in samples to your County A,ent. office. Samples should consist of about eight branches one-half to one inch in diameter l to facilitate chip removal l and about seven inches lon'. Samples should be taken from the area believed to be infected. They should t: shipped in a plastic bag or wrapping to i,revcnt drying, so try to wrap them fieforc you bring them in.
