Common hackberry is a large deciduous tree reaching 12 m to 18 m in height at maturity. This is the first report of L. pseudotheobromae causing canker on Chinese hackberry stems in China. Conidia were oval, both ends round and blunt, wider in the middle, initially transparent and aseptate or not partitioned (Fig. The twigs and stems of all infected seedlings became cankerous and turned black, which was devastating to Chinese hackberry plantations.

Der Hackberry General Store wurde 1934 errichtet als der nahegelegene Ort Hackberry jenseits des Schienenstrangs mehr und mehr wuchs. The hackberry tree is very adaptable and that is one of the reasons you will find it lining so many streets across the country. Common hackberry (C. occidentalis) tolerates most difficult sites and is native from Canada to Georgia including Kentucky. Disease and pests: None, noticeably resistant to oak root rot fungus. Annuals usually escape disease since they are in the ground such a short time. This tree has weak wood that breaks under the stresses of snow, ice and wind. The tough semicircular conk is usually found near ground level. 2e). 2016), blueberry dieback (Wang et al.

The symptoms of canker began to develop 20 days after inoculation with Ls7 isolate and by day 35, there were dark, enlarged longitudinal lesions. The canker disease reappeared again in late July and August as well as spread rapidly. Host trees normally decline for a variable period of time and then die. 1 of 5. In addition, the Ls7 isolate grew at 10 °C and produced dark pink colonies at 35 °C (Fig. In mid-July 2017, symptoms of stem canker were found in commercial nurseries located in Shuyang County, Suqian City, Jiangsu Province (118°36′48′′E; 34°15′25′′N). 2015), and Eucalyptus cankers (Chen et al.

Sixty fungal samples were divided into seven types numbered Ls1 to Ls7 type according to colony morphology. Fungal isolates were cultured in PDA medium for 5 days at 25 °C. It is also susceptible to galls, caused by insects called psyllids, that can disfigure the leaves. The Diplodia mutila isolate CMW7060 was selected as an out-group (Table 2). Insects, Diseases, or Other Plant Problems: Witches’ broom (creating dwarfed, dense, contorted twig clusters at the branch ends) is somewhat common; while it does little harm to the tree, but can be quite unsightly.

Common diseases of Chinese hackberry are powdery mildew, stem and root rot, twig blight and leaf spot. Therefore, the Ls7 isolate was determined to be the pathogen, although the seedlings infected with Ls7 isolate did not die. hackberry, jojoba, and cacti are very tolerant. 4a).

Colonies of the Ls7 isolate grew rapidly, and after 3 days of culturing at 25 °C, were grayish-white with uneven edges (Fig. 2016). It has a slender trunk that grows to a height of sixty feet in the middle states, but can be much taller the further south it grows. The slightly sunken grey–black lesions enlarged longitudinally and the associated weakening of tree vigor affected the ornamental and commercial value of the species. 2010; Sakalidis et al. b The leaves of the diseased plant showed dieback. 2011), which was validated using bootstrap analyses with 1000 repetitions (Saitou and Nei 1987).

The Asian native pest is also referred to as the Asian woolly hackberry aphid and it primarily infests the Chinese hackberry. The isolate from xylem tissue with a high frequency (> 50%) was named Ls7 type. Pathogenicity tests were carried out on 4-year-old seedlings. 2014). One hundred µL TE was added to completely dissolve the DNA; and, (4) 100 µL of RNase A (10 mg/mL) was attached to each tube and dried at 65 °C for 30 min.
