are fungi that have been reported from all states; M. kriegeriana was reported from Washington, and M. rubiginosa has been reported from Idaho. These fungi overwinter on fallen leaves and in twig lesions. The disease is widespread and common, especially in moist spring weather.

It can make trees unsightly but rarely damages tree growth significantly.

Davidson and Ralph S. Byther. See: Willow (Salix spp.)-Marssonina Leaf and Twig Spot. Willow (Salix spp.)-Rust. Cause Several different fungi can cause leaf spots on willow including Cylindrosporium salicinum, Drepanopeziza salicis (formerly Pseudopeziza salicis), Marssonina spp., Rhytisma salicinum (tar spot), and Septogloeum were all considered common on willow in Washington.

Biology. Marssonina leaf and twig spot is a fungal infection of twigs and leaves. Initially, small brown to black spots develop on leaves and green twigs.

The spots may have white centers. Marssonina leaf and twig spot affects willow trees as well as aspens. Sometimes referred to as aspen leaf spot, this disease is caused by the fungal pathogen Marssonina.

Fungal spores spread onto. Leaf enlists the help of the hermit Mantru, a Willow Twig who lives on the Long Ice, a pika named Winkers, and a snowshoe hare named Poppy, to help find Buddy and Burba, who have befriended a snowshoe babe named Puff, a horned lark named Flip, some mice (squeakers), and a mountain goat (ridgerunner) kid named Buck who has run off from his s: 5.

The fungus Marssonina causes the most common foliage disease on aspen and cottonwoods in urban and forested areas of Colorado. Marssonina leaf spots are dark brown flecks, often with yellow halos (Figure 1).

Immature spots characteristically have a white center. On severely infected leaves, several spots may fuse to form large black dead patches in late summer (Figure 2). Leaf symptoms vary, depending upon the susceptibility of the poplar species or hybrid, the species of Marssonina, and the severity of infection.

Look for small, brownish, circular to angular spots, 1 to 2 mm across. These spots develop on the surface of leaves in spring and early summer (fig. The center of the spot usually appears whitish.

The average life span of the weeping willow is almost 30 years. If the tree is over 30 years and has got rot disease, better get rid of it as it might fall down and damage the surroundings. Brown spots on the leaves and shoots: This is a disease called marssonina canker or black canker.

Certain leaf spots have special names, such as anthracnose, black spot, downy spot or white mold, ink spot, spot anthracnose, leaf blister or curl, scab, shot-hole, sooty blotch, and tar spot. Symptoms Most leaf spot diseases develop as small, scattered, circular to oval dead areas in the leaves; usually tan, dark brown, yellow, gray, purple.

MARSSONINA CANKER AND LEAF SPOT (ANTHRACNOSE) OF WEEPING WILLOW by D R Rose, Pathology Branch, Forestry Commission SUMMARY Marssonina canker and leaf spot damages the leaves and shoots of Weeping willows and, less frequently, other willows during spring and early summer.

Though it can seriously disfigure trees, the disease is not fatal. In moderate to severe infections, stunted growth, leaf discoloration and die-back of the twigs may be evident. Willow gall creates the same type of odd growths on the willow tree’s leaves.

Only severe gall infections will harm willow trees. These diseases can be controlled by pruning away and destroying all infected leaves and twigs. Willow trees are prone to many diseases, but black leaf spot is generally one of the more harmless ones.

Black leaf spot disease is typically caused by a fungus that overwinters in leaf debris on the ground, but may also survive in buds or bark. Damage is usually aesthetic only, unless the symptoms begin early in the season. Leaf spot diseases weaken trees and shrubs by interrupting photosynthesis.

Most leaf spot diseases affect only a small percentage of the tree's overall leaf area, and are a minor stress on the health of the tree. Leaf spot diseases should be taken seriously if they result in moderate to complete leaf loss two to four years in a row.

Insects. Most insects cause damage to a willow's leaves rather than its bark and wood, but a few, such as boring insects, eat through the wood.

Flathead borers are the larva of beetles. Diseases caused by Marssonina and Septoria fungi begin as small black spots that grow and eventually join, forming large, black, dead spots on the trees' leaves. The foliage often falls from the affected trees prematurely, and the fungi overwinter in the fallen leaves.

Venturia causes a blight that affects the leaves, leaf stems and young shoots.

Dead areas on leaves can be more irregular on hosts such as ash, maple, and willow, while sycamore and oak anthracnose lesions typically develop along major leaf veins.

If leaves are very young when infected, they can become curled and distorted with only a portion of each leaf dying. The Leaf Scar: This is a scar of leaf attachment. When the leaf drops, a scar is left just under the bud and it can be unique.

The trees easily identified by its leaf scars are hickory (3-lobed), ash (shield-shaped)and dogwood (leaf scar encircles the twig).

Alternaria leaf spot/blight Disease symptoms. Leaf spots appear on the leaves in late spring and early summer. Initially, they are 1/8 to 1/4 inch in diameter, round, brown, and occasionally have a purple border.

As spots age, they often turn tan to ash gray. Some spots undergo secondary enlargement, becoming irregularly shaped. "Willow and Twig" by Jean Little was a cute book. I loved the fact the Twig would hang around Willow at all times, literally like his name, whixh is how he got his nickname.

I feel that that makes Willow more responsible, almost like she knows that this little one is in her care/5(15).

33 Canker Diseases • Summer Key – Leaves green on both sides and slightly toothed. Slightly wider leaf and not as long as whiplash willow. Distinctive feature: Leaves lack a waxy bloom and have few to no hairs (glabrous).

• Winter Key – Numerous basal stems less than 2 inches in. Ink Spot Disease. Ink spots are a result of the fungus Ciborinia and are commonly found in dense aspen stands. This disease causes leaf discoloration and early leaf drop, which may reduce tree growth.

Quick Facts. Five fungi cause most foliage diseases on aspen, cottonwoods and other poplar species. Foliage diseases develop readily in wet, cool. Most aspen stands that I have visited appear to be suffering from Marssonina Leaf Spot (or Blight).

This is the disease that is causing most of the trees to lose their leaves right now. I have also observed leaf and twig blight (Venturia sp.) and aspen/poplar rust.Marssonina Leaf Blight May 14th, Plants Affected: Aspen, cottonwoods, and poplars. Symptoms: Tan or brown spots appear on the leaves which gives them a blackened appearance.

Live Cycle: This disease is aggravated by wet humid weather. Heavy infections. LA leaf spot disease creates spots on foliage. The spots will vary in size and color depending on the plant, the organism involved and the stage of development.

Spots are most often brownish but may be tan or black. Concentric rings or a dark margin around the spot may be present. Over time the spots may combine to enlarge and form blotches.
