[2], The disease is caused by the phytotoxin cerato-platanin, which occurs in the cell wall of C. platani, as well as other Dikarya, and is involved in molecular fungus-host interactions. For unknown reasons the disease seems to have become less significant in the United States in recent years, but Greece and south-eastern France have experienced serious losses of shade trees. Another serious ailment, this disease often causes trees to die within about 24 months of the first visible symptoms. Italian Society of Arboriculture Milan 2- 5 July 2015, Parc Sempione, Milan, Development of a partnership model Lucio Montecchio & Neville Fay 2 . On behalf of the Forestry Commission, the London Tree Officers' Association (LTOA) surveyed 2,979 London plane trees in 2014 for symptoms of C. platani infection. The inner bark and the cambial region of the cankered area were discoloured bluish‐black and the underlying wood stained dark reddish‐brown to bluish‐black. As the disease progresses and cankers enlarge, water sprouts develop below the cankers. Canker stain, Ceratocystis fimbriata f. sp. When left in ideal conditions, Plane trees can live to … As mentioned, plane tree diseases tend to mirror those that afflict its close relative the Oriental plane and American sycamore tree. Until December 2019 the UK had European Union Protected Zone status for plane material to provide extra safeguards against accidental introductions of this disease on imported plane plants or wood. 742. platani. This site uses cookies, you can read more about how we use them on our Privacy Policy page. This fungal disease is not present in Australia, however, if established it would spread rapidly – mostly affecting London Plane Trees. Ceratocystis platani causes a disease in plane trees known as "Canker stain of plane" (UK English) or "Canker of sycamore" (US English). platani. 1) Identify (by means of pictures and an ID plate) both the tree as a whole and its main symptoms. Canker stain of plane Dealing with an outbreak A guidance note for tree officers/managers and contractors 1 Introduction 1.1 Ceratocystis platani (canker stain of plane, or CSP) is a fungal vascular pathogen which affects the genus Platanus, causing infected trees to die. Canker Stain. US Department of Agriculture Circular No. In many areas required to save your tree from devastation and disfigurement is! & T.C. The workshop “Canker Stain of Plane, a Training Workshop in Italy” was co-organized by CIRPAM (Centro Interdipartimentale di Ricerca per il restauro, il recupero e la valorizzazione dei Parchi storici e degli Alberi Monumentali), Treework Environmental Practice and De Rebus Plantarum, PAN. It produces resilient, long-lived spores which spread the disease, and these can persist in soil and on un-sterilised pruning and cutting tools. Visit the UK Government website for an explanation of the regulations applying to the importation of: The C. platani fungus is thought to have originated in North America. rather irregular annual zones Y^ inch to 2 inches wide. They are remarkably hardy and tolerant of a variety of conditions. Cankers elongate rapidly, and expand sideways slowly to girdle the branch or trunk. Lethal cankers on London plane trees and sycamore seen first as a black or brown coloration, generally in a lens-shaped pattern, on the smooth yellow or green bark. The first is called Canker stain of plane: A guide to prevention and is a brief reminder for tree officers and contractors of the importance of biosecurity in the fight to prevent Ceratocystis from entering the UK. There have been two isolated outbreaks at Ile-de-France and Pays-de-la-Loire in Northern France, where the source of the infection has not been confirmed. most commonly on trunks, less frequently on branches, and occasionally. C. platani can persist for months or years in affected wood and roots, so removal and burning of all infected material is the safest form of control. The disease has also been known as plane tree wilt. The canker stain disease is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fimbriata; it is able to produce suffering and even to bring to death those trees. The disease has long been known to destroy plane trees in southern United States as well (3). [2] In Gloucester, New Jersey, 87% of London plane trees had died by 1949. The key indicators which would trigger a response are findings or reports of: the presence of an infected tree in a nursery; The pathogen is now present in most of Italy. Ceratocystis platani is believed to be native to southeastern USA. A report commissioned by former prime minister François Fillon has delivered its verdict on the scale of works required to restore the Canal du Midi‘s priceless tree canopy. London plane trees have been popular urban specimens for nearly 400 years, and with good reason. The rules set out in this guide help prevent the diseases Xylella fastidiosa, Ceratocystis platani (canker stain or plane) and Candidatus Phytoplasma ulmi … Of the Canal du Midi’s 42,000 plane trees, 25,000 have been cut down in 12 years. More recently, canker stain Search terms in quotes will enable a more specific search e.g. It is a wound pathogen causing canker, wilt and then death of … They are valued for their shade, amenity value and toleration of air pollution and water shortages. Some of the 'Additional resources' listed below also have illustrations. In short, the legislation effectively banned the movement of plane plants into the UK unless they had been grown in an area free of canker stain of plane, and were accompanied by a plant passport certifying this. [2] It has also been reported in Spain, Switzerland, Greece, Iran, and Armenia. This included an option to move plants from a Pest-Free Place of Production, which was not previously available for movements into Protected Zones. The fungus is transferred from tree to tree by insects that feed on the sap. ), is a Quarantine parasite listed in Annex IIAII of Directive 2000/29/EC. In all cases, provide precise details of the location and, if possible, clear, well lit, close-up photographs of the symptoms. It is caused by the ascomycete fungus Ceratocystis platani (C. platani), which was formerly known as Ceratocystis platani f. platani and Ceratocystis fimbriata s. sp. This disease affects the water-conducting vessels of plane trees causing wilting of the leaves and staining of the wood. The images below, show the cracking visible as part of the canker, as well as the dark-coloured spots, characteristic of the fungus. This latter pathway is thought to be the main means by which the famous avenue of plane trees bordering the Canal du Midi in France became infected. However, with the re-categorisation of this organism as a Union Quarantine Pest in December 2019, Protected Zone status was no longer applicable. The example of canker stain of plane 22 . The trees are pruned during winter each year, to stop them becoming too large and giving them their unusual aesthetics. 3) Screw a sterile increment borer tangentially (not radially as usually) to cross at least one necrosis. It originates from the eastern United States. Cankers elongate rapidly, and expand sideways slowly to girdle the branch or trunk. by entering through wounds and causing canker stain disease and tree death. Canker stain in plane trees Published on 27 May 2011 (updated on 17 June 2011) Probably introduced into France in 1945 by boxes of ammunitions made with infected plane tree planks from the USA, canker stain is a disease caused by a microscopic fungus, the Ceratocystis platani , which exclusively attacks plane trees. London plane is a naturally occurring hybrid, and its parent species, eastern or Oriental plane (P. orientalis) and western or American plane (P. occidentalis), can also be infected. Contaminated tree surgeons' and forestry workers' gloves, ropes, clothes and boots might also spread the fungus. [2] Since then, hundreds of dead and dying trees have been found along streams and rivers in southwestern Greece, and many ornamental trees have died in residential and recreational areas. Its spread can therefore be limited by sourcing plant material from regions free of the disease, and by practising strict biosecurity (plant hygiene), such as disinfecting tools with alcohol before moving on to the next tree. Canker stain definition is - a disease of plane trees caused by a fungus (Endoconidiophora fimbriata platani) and marked by bluish black or reddish brown discoloration which forms a radial pattern beneath elongate blackened cankers on the trunk and less frequently on the branches. It has been planted by thousands in the East and Mid- west, in a region that includes New York City, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Washington, D. C. Canker stains is a lethal fungal affliction of the sycamore tree, caused by the Ceratocystis fimbriata. There are unconfirmed reports from some other European countries. US Department of Agriculture Circular No. The concern therefore is that if C. platani were to establish in the UK the combined effects of it and other threats, such as anthracnose, massaria and elbow-patch crust, might make their management too expensive for the public organisations which manage most of our plane trees, and they discontinue using them. Canker Stain of Planetrees by JAMES M. WALTER OiNCE its introduction from England about 1900, the Lon- don planetree has become one of the most important shade trees of the United States. [2] At Forte dei Marmi, one of the oldest infection centres in Italy, 90% of all plane trees died of the disease in the twenty-year period from 1972-1991. It is a wound pathogen causing canker, wilt and then death of infected trees. In Europe, both Oriental plane and London plane trees are seriously threatened by the invasive fungal pathogen Ceratocystis platani (Walter) Engelbr. The canker may at first just appear to be a darkened, flattened area on the wood. [R.A.M., 30, p. 244]), infection is believed to have appeared for the first time in 1926. [4], The disease was first reported in the USA in 1935 affecting Platanus × acerifolia. Although C. platani is not thought to be present in the UK, there is a risk of its being accidentally introduced. an area free of C. platani. Affected trees decline so markedly that it is unlikely that the disease would have remained undetected if it had reached here. [2], The disease was first found in Europe in Marseille, France in 1945, and is believed to have been transported there by US troops during Operation Dragoon towards the end of World War II. [4] The fungus is a wound parasite which rapidly infects plane trees, causing disruption of water movement, cankers and eventually death. Staining can extend longitudinally (above and below) in the sapwood at a rate of 50–100cm per year. Sycamore Canker Stain Sycamore canker stain is a fungal disease that affects sycamores and London plane trees in California. Canker Stain, a disease caused by the fungus ceratocystis platani, has had an especially serious effect on European plane trees in recent decades. New requirements were therefore introduced for plane plants being moved anywhere in the EU/UK. Inspections were undertaken at 53 sites across 28 London boroughs. Webster RK, Butler EE (1967) A morphological and biological concept of the species Ceratocystis fimbriata. This pathogen poses a significant risk to plane trees in the UK because plane is widely used as an urban amenity species in parks and public gardens, and alongside streets and roads. Canker stain also spreads through the use of infected planting material, via sawdust (from cutting infected trees) and through any cut made by infection-carrying tools or equipment. It was subsequently observed in plantations and in natural forests of Platanus occidentalis. Contaminated sawdust produced during pruning and sanitation fellings can contribute to disease spread. complex as Ceratocystis fimbriata f. No effective chemical treatment is currently available. Beneath the cankers, the wood is … When infection is localized on a primary branch or on the trunk of a young plant, the most obvious symptom is a sunken, necrotic, spindle-shaped area, with the main axis lying lengthways. Among them is London plane (Platanus x acerifolia, also known as Platanus x hispanica), which is widely grown in British towns and cities. The 42,000 plane trees (82% of the trees lining the banks) are being decimated by canker stain. 10. Canker stain of plane is present in several European countries, including Albania, Armenia, France, Greece, Italy, Switzerland and Turkey, as well as some western and eastern states of the United States of America. Their habit of shedding bark allows them to cast off particulate pollutants, while their large, stiff leaves make them excellent shade trees. ), is a Quarantine parasite listed in Annex IIAII of Directive 2000/29/EC. Walter JM, Rex EG, Schreiber R (1952) The rate of progress and destructiveness of canker stain of plane-trees. The key indicators which would trigger a response are findings or reports of: the presence of an infected tree in a nursery; The fungus was introduced by the American landings at Provence, in the south of France. Plane tree planting material, other than seeds, intended for planting must now have been grown throughout their lifetime in a pest-free area, i.e. It is called Canker stain or “sycamore canker”. Willd. It spread rapidly through Italy and into France and Switzerland. The disease is characterized by blackened, elongate cankers having. 2) Gently remove the bark to identify the necrosis edge by means of a sterile knife or gouge. Canker stain also spreads through the use of infected planting material, via sawdust (from cutting infected trees) and through any cut made by infection-carrying tools or equipment. When the soft outer layers of wood underneath the bark are infected, vessels in the vascular system are blocked from transporting water and energy and cause the sudden wilting of the tree. 1) Identify (by means of pictures and an ID plate) both the tree as a whole and its main symptoms. Of the Canal du Midi’s 42,000 plane trees, 25,000 have been cut down in 12 years. [2], Ceratocystis platani was first detected in Greece in 2003. Developing a partnership model for tree disease resilience The example of canker stain of plane 1 . The fungus can be spread easily through the movement of infected cuttings. In many areas required to save your tree from devastation and disfigurement is! these cankers may be recognisable only as longitudinal cracks on larger, thicker barked trees, removal of the bark will reveal staining - hence the name ‘Canker stain of plane’. SPREAD THROUGH EUROPE. Read our operational statement about COVID-19, Not present in United KingdomNotifiable – see ‘Report a sighting’ belowScientific name of causal agent - Ceratocystis platani. Ceratocystis platani, responsible for Canker Stain of Plane (CSP) (Platanus spp. See ‘Official action’ below for details of a survey conducted in 2014. Beneath the cankers, the wood is stained bluish black or reddish brown. However, this harsh pruning makes them vulnerable to canker stain and other fungal diseases, especially in the wet Spring months. This knowledge mainly concerns the morphology, taxonomy and biology of the fungus and relations between host and parasite. The canker stain disease is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fimbriata; it is able to produce suffering and even to bring to death those trees. & T.C. [1] The fungus was previously considered to be part of the Ceratocystis fimbriata species Ceratocystis fimbriata f. platani [2] It was elevated to the level of a new species in 2005. This is the preferred route for suspected sightings made on trade premises, such as nurseries and garden centres. ), one of the most widely used ornamental species world‐wide, are seriously threatened by the invasive fungal pathogen Ceratocystis … The cankers occur. Once established, they require little additional care with the exception of watering. Phytopathology 42, 236-239. It is a wound parasite; a pathogen that enters the tree via existing cuts and damage. The most devastating of these diseases is called canker stain, which is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis platani. Sycamore Canker Stain Sycamore canker stain is a fungal disease that affects sycamores and London plane trees in California. Despite a range of preventive measures and careful felling of the affected trees, the whole population of plane trees east of Carcassonne is … Phytopathology 42, 236-239. Canker stain in plane trees Published on 27 May 2011 (updated on 17 June 2011) Probably introduced into France in 1945 by boxes of ammunitions made with infected plane tree planks from the USA, canker stain is a disease caused by a microscopic fungus, the Ceratocystis platani , which exclusively attacks plane trees. The disease mostly proliferates through human activity. London plane and sycamore trees have sparse foliage, small leaves, and elongated sunken cankers on the trunk and larger branches. The 42,000 plane trees (82% of the trees lining the banks) are being decimated by canker stain. platani. Beneath the cankers, the wood is stained bluish black or reddish brown in a wedge-shape (when viewed in cross section) with the point of the wedge extending toward the center of the trunk or branch. The epidemiologi-cal data highlight the destructiveness of the disease and its potential danger to all street plantings of Platanus acerifolia in Europe. Canker stain, a disease caused by the fungus Ceratoycystis fimbriata f. platani has killed thousands of London plane trees (Plantanus X acerifolia) in northeastern United States since about 1926 (4). C. platani can infect most species of plane trees. Few other tree species are as well suited to the role currently fulfilled by plane trees. It is not known to be present in the UK. Its symptoms include reduced foliage, stunted leaf growth, and the appearance of elongated, sunken cankers on the trunk and older branches. [2] In Philadelphia the disease had killed 10,000 out of a total 150,000 trees by 1945. Webster RK, Butler EE (1967) A morphological and biological concept of the species Ceratocystis fimbriata. where however plane trees are uncommon. [4] The canal is lined with around 42,000 plane trees and up to 2011, around 2,500 trees had been felled, destroyed and replaced with disease-resistant planes. Ceratocystis platani is the causal agent of canker stain of plane trees, a lethal disease able to kill mature trees in one or two successive growing seasons. Canker stain. As of now, there is no know cure. (The term pest-free applies to disease-causing organisms as well as insect pests.). These stains turn brown and make the bark burst. Distribution. The evidence suggests that it was accidentally introduced to southern Europe from the eastern United States during World War II on crates and boxes made of infected plane wood that were carrying military supplies: the first plane trees to be affected were in and around major ports. [4], In 2006 C. platani was identified as the cause of plane tree death along the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO world heritage site in France. Another serious ailment, this disease often causes trees to die within about 24 months of the first visible symptoms. SLB is a known vector of Ceratocystis Fimbriata, also known as “Canker Stain”. Once infected, trees die within three to seven years. In Scotland, contact the Scottish Government’s Horticulture & Marketing Unit: e-mail: In Northern Ireland, contact the DAERA Plant Health Inspection Branch: e-mail. [4] The disease can cause sudden death of a portion of the crown, and trees of 30–40 cm diameter may die within 2–3 years of infection. [1], Ceratocystis platani causes a disease in plane trees known as "Canker stain of plane" (UK English) or "Canker of sycamore" (US English). We therefore encourage tree and ground-care professionals, plane tree owners and managers, and the public, to be vigilant for signs of it and to report suspected sightings immediately. No positive findings of C. platani were detected in any of the trees inspected. The killing of cambial tissue causes dark, lenticular spots on the face of the bark, which are often detectable at a considerable distance from the infection site. "Ash". 742. 3) Screw a sterile increment borer tangentially (not radially as usually) to cross at least one necrosis. platani. In the oldest known centre, at Gloucester, New Jersey, of the canker stain disease of the London plane tree (Platanus acerifolia), caused by Endoconidiophora [Ceratocystis] fimbriata f. platani Walter n.f. These spots are very important in diagnosing canker stain infection even when the tree has been invisibly infected through the roots (Panconesi, 1981). The new requirements apply to imports to the UK from Albania, Armenia, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United States and the EU-27. View, tree diseases is called canker stain of plane trees are similar to those afflict. However, this harsh pruning makes them vulnerable to canker stain and other fungal diseases, especially in the wet Spring months. 4 Canker stain of plane trees Journal of Plant Pathology (1999), 81 (1), 3-1 5 resistance to pruning, pollution, and, not least, anthrac- nose (Gnomonia platani Kleb. C. platani infection causes pronounced staining of the xylem (the cells which transport fluid and nutrients up the tree from the roots), severe wilting and yellowing (chlorosis) of the leaves, and tree death. The workshop “Canker Stain of Plane, a Training Workshop in Italy” was co-organized by CIRPAM (Centro Interdipartimentale di Ricerca per il restauro, il recupero e la valorizzazione dei Parchi storici e degli Alberi Monumentali), Treework Environmental Practice and De Rebus Plantarum, PAN. 2) Gently remove the bark to identify the necrosis edge by means of a sterile knife or gouge. Canker stain, a disease caused by the fungus Ceratoycystis fimbriata f. platani has killed thousands of London plane trees (Plantanus X acerifolia) in northeastern United States since about 1926 (4). Plane wilt (also known as canker stain of plane) is a serious disease of plane trees (Platanus spp.) [4], Media related to Ceratocystis platani at Wikimedia Commons, Rapid Pest Risk Analysis for Ceratocystis platani, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ceratocystis_platani&oldid=976898866, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 5 September 2020, at 18:41. 708880°—47 32 481. These can become roughened and black with age. The canker stain disease is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fimbriata; it is able to produce suffering and even to bring to death those trees. C. platani is an aggressive fungal pathogen that attacks plane trees ( Platanus spp.) The pathogen is a quarantine organism and has a negative impact on anthropogenic and natural populations of plane trees. canker stain of plane trees caused by Ceratocystis fim-briata f.sp. These should be clear, well-lit, close-up pictures of symptoms. Canker stain of plane is present in several European countries, including Albania, … They are remarkably hardy and tolerant of a variety of conditions. 6 | Canker Stain of Plane Contingency Plan | Dafni Nianiaka |14/09/2016 Canker Stain of Plane : Contingency plan has taken place in Southampton, Bristol and Kent. It can reach the heartwood along the medullary rays (lines of cells which radiate outwards from the heartwood towards the perimeter of the log). 6 | Canker Stain of Plane Contingency Plan | Dafni Nianiaka |14/09/2016 Canker Stain of Plane : Contingency plan has taken place in Southampton, Bristol and Kent. fastidiosa from elm does not infect sycamore or vice versa. It is thought to be native to south-eastern USA and has spread throughout urban P. acerifolia populations planted in the large cities of the East coast. A moderately fast growing tree city 's tree population a deciduous tree, and the flowers are greenish yet this! Treating against plane tree canker stain. In Europe, both Oriental plane and London plane trees are seriously threatened by the invasive fungal pathogen Ceratocystis platani (Walter) Engelbr. Symptoms Panconesi (1981, 1999) provides a good description of the symptoms of canker stain. The canker stain disease is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis fimbriata; it is able to produce suffering and even to bring to death those trees. When left in ideal conditions, Plane trees … Once established, they require little additional care with the exception of watering. The new measures include more stringent requirements, and are based on the earlier Protected Zone arrangements. Tolerant hybrid plane trees are being developed, and one variety has been released to the market in France. Canker stain of plane is a disease which can affect several species of plane trees (trees in the Platanus genus). 10. on major roots. Although its progress through France was initially slower, the fungus has been spreading northwards at a much faster rate in recent years. It is a wound pathogen causing canker, wilt and then death of … ), is a Quarantine parasite listed in Annex IIAII of Directive 2000/29/EC. Further help with identifying the disease and its symptoms, including pictures, is available in this Pest Alert. After its detection in Italy (Panconesi, 1972) the parasite was identified on urban plane plantings in other European countries, first 4 Canker stain of plane trees Journal of Plant Pathology (1999), 81 (1), 3-15 01 Panconesi xp 21-09-2004 9:55 Pagina 4 It is a wound parasite; a pathogen that enters the tree via existing cuts and damage. [4] Cankers on the tree trunk are characterised by necrosis of inner bark and bluish-black to reddish-brown discolouration of sapwood. More than half of the sites surveyed included potential hosts planted during the previous 10 years, and the sites ranged in size from a minimum of 20 to, in some cases, more than 200 trees.
