The Strumella Disease in Southern Connecticut
Serious losses in oak in southern Connecticut are caused by the Strumella disease, which is widespread throughout the Northeastern States. Stands are attacked early in their life, and extensive cankers develop slowly in the trunks of infested trees. Diseased trees are gradually killed, and those that survive to merchantable age have large cankers on the trunk. Most of these cankers occur in the first eight feet of the stem, rendering the valuable butt log practically completely worthless. Control can be effected by removing infected trees early in the life of the stand and by felling dead trees.
