Dutch elm disease
Other Names: Ceratcystis ulmi
Nature: Dutch elm disease is a fungal plant disease. The fungus is most frequently carried from tree to tree by female bark beetles. The leaves on one or more branches of a stricken tree suddenly wilt, turn dull green to yellow or brown then curl and finally drop off. On young trees the progress of the disease is rapid as the fungus spreads quickly through vascular tissue and the tree generally dies within two months; older, less vigorous trees take several years to die.
