Abstract:

Phytophthora ramorum, the cause of “sudden oak death,” is responsible for widespread tree mortality in central and northern California and appears to be spreading to other areas as well. Although thus far only oaks in the black or red oak group have been found to be susceptible to the disease, at least 11 other unrelated plant species may serve as hosts. Foresters in the field should look for symptoms on these known hosts in proximity to dead and bleeding oakds in order to confirm the presence of the pathogen.
