Little or no disease occurs during growing seasons with below average rainfall.

Eastern White Pine Foliage Blight

The incidence of disease is highest and damage most severe in densely stocked seedbeds. Pestalotia sp Prevention - Use seedbed mulches that are free of fungus pathogens. Favor mulch materials such as hydromulch, sawdust, pine bark, and grain straw.


Avoid planting white pine for pestalotia sp because white pines may provide a source of inoculum. Never ship diseased white pine seedlings between nurseries.

Cultural - Plant at densities of fewer than 25 seedlings per square foot: Irrigate pestalotia sp the early morning hours, when seedlings dry most quickly. This practice reduces the time that the seedling could be infected. Remove and destroy pestalotia sp that have 50 percent or more of their foliage discolored or that are 25 percent or more defoliated, or both.

More-intensive practices may be needed when culling white pine Christmas tree stock.

As an alternative to culling, grow these seedlings another year as seedlings and protect the new foliage pestalotia sp a fungicide. Store seedlings for as short a time as possible. Infected bark may be covered pestalotia sp fungal fruiting structures giving the tissue a black sooty appearance.

Leaf pestalotia sp tend to be tan to gray and are often the result of previous damage such as freeze injury, scorching or mechanical wounds. Dark, disc or cushion-shaped acervuli are formed under the plant epidermis which then splits open revealing the fruiting structures.


In a nursery situation, severely diseased leaves should be pruned and destroyed to reduce spores available to infect healthy tissue. If the pestalotia sp is small with only a few leaves, eliminate the palm completely.

PP/PP Pestalotiopsis (Pestalotia) Diseases of Palm

In the landscape where nutrient deficiencies are often problematic, pruning diseased leaves may make the deficiency worse. Thus, one needs to decide which pestalotia sp or will debilitate the palm most—the disease or the nutrient deficiency.

In many pestalotia sp, the nutrient deficiency causes chlorosis yellow and necrosis death of the leaf tissue, creating the wound necessary for Pestalotiopsis infection.

By eliminating the deficiency symptoms, one prevents disease development also. Thus, proper nutrient management is critical for disease prevention and pestalotia sp.

While fungicides may be useful to prevent further spread of the pestalotia sp, they are merely a supplement to water management, sanitation, injury prevention and good palm nutrition. Fungicides alone will not solve the problem.
