Description: Sapstreak disease, a potentially serious problem of sugarbushes and forest stands, occurs when the causal fungus, Ceratocystis virescens, invades the sapwood of roots and bases of stems through wounds inflicted during logging, saphauling, or other activities. Describes how to recognize the disease, the factors that affect its occurrence and development, and management approaches to help reduce its effects.
Keywords: Ceratocystis virescens, root and buttress-root wounds, vascular disease, sugarbush, forest management
