Plane wilt


Plane wilt (also known as canker stain of plane) is a serious disease of plane trees
(Platanus spp.) caused by the ascomycete fungus Ceratocystis platani. This disease
affects the water-conducting vessels of plane trees causing wilting of the leaves and
staining of the wood. The disease is usually fatal, with young trees of a diameter of
3040 cm being killed within 2 to 3 years after infection and older, more vigorous
trees within 4 to 5 years
