Introduced Plant Pathogens Threatening North American Forests - North American Invasive Species Management Association
Introduced plant pathogens threaten North American forests. Some arrived in the distant past: chestnut blight, white pine blister rust, beech bark disease, Dutch elm disease, butternut canker. Damaging introductions continue through the late 20th Century (sudden oak death, laurel wilt) and recent decades (ohia rust, Fusarium blight, rapid ohia death, beech leaf disease). Introduction of pathogens to naïve ecosystems is a global problem: North American and Asian pathogens are killing millions of trees in Europe.
