Clitocybe tabescens root rot of sand pine in Georgia and Florida has caused up to 25 percent mortality in some Ocala race plantations. Advanced symptoms in crowns of slowly dying trees are thin chlorotic foliage and reduced shoot growth, but rapidly killed trees have wilted foliage which eventually turns dark, reddish-brown. Mycelial mats of C. tabescens with small perforations are found in the cambial region of infected roots and root collars of most diseased trees. Rhizomorphs of C. tabescens were not found in the field but do form readily in culture.
The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
