2 Lophodermium needle cast, its causes and development Biology of the pathogen Taxonomy and distribution Lophodermium pinastri (Schrad.) Chev. is ascomycetous, belonging to the order Phaci- diales and the family Hypodermataceae. Leptostroma pinastri Desm. is the conidial stage of the fungus (Gaumann, ). Re-. Lophodermium needle cast can be found in forest nurseries, Christmas tree farms and landscapes. There are several species of Lophodermium and most are weak pathogens. Lophodermium seditiosum is the most virulent, and it most often attacks Austrian, red & Scots pine. Very seldom does it affect Jack & white pine.

a fungicide. Cyclaneusma needle cast is caused by a fungus that mainly attacks Scots pine, although Austrian and Eastern white pine as well a few other pine species may also be infected. This disease may be found on all but the current season's needles. Symptoms begin in early Autumn when needles within the interior of the infected tree begin to. Lophodermium needle cast is caused by the fungus known as Lophodermium seditiosum. Pine needles on the Austrian, red, Scots and Virginia pines sustain the most damage from this disease. Affected pine tree needles develop brown spots on the needles with yellow halos in the late fall. By early spring, the spots are larger and more obvious, eventually turning the pine needle yellow.

Abstract. Lophodermium seditiosum is a serious needle pathogen of pine. In Sweden it is particularly Pinus sylvestris in the south and middle of Sweden that is badly attacked. During certain years a heavy infection can result in serious needle loss in young plantations and in nurseries, which results in reduced growth or death of young seedlings. White Pine Needlecasts (Canavirgella banfieldii and Mycosphaerella dearnessii) In June , the majority of public assistance requests for tree disease concerns were due to the yellowing, browning, and premature needle loss of white pines.

Pine (Pinus spp.)-Lophodermium Needle Cast In spring the entire needle turns red and eventually straw-colored. The large, black, football-shaped fruting bodies can be easily seen in this picture. Lophodermium seditiosum infects needles of Austrian (Pinus nigra), mugo (P.

mugo), red (P. resinosa), and Scotch pine (P. sylvestris) and can kill young trees within a year. On the other hand, several other Lophodermium species are Lophodermium needle cast of pine.

book pathogens that merely cause premature browning and loss of older needles on pine, spruce and fir. The outbreak of Lophodermium needle cast in British Columbia was first identified and confirmed in in Christmas tree plantations of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) (T.H., Nicholls, personal communication) and orna- mental nursery beds of Scots pine and Monterey pine (P.

Short needle varieties of Scots pine (such as Spanish and French Green) are highly susceptible; long needle varieties, such as Scottish Highland and Austrian Hills, have greater resistance. Lophodermium infections can cause extensive defoliation in spruce and pine, which can stunt young trees or with severe infections, lead to death.

Infection in older trees is generally not fatal, but defoliation can lead to sparse looking branches. Two main species of the fungus are present in western Canada; Lophodermium picea, a pathogen of spruce and L. pinastri, a pathogen of pine. Common Needle Cast Diseases of Pine. The three most common needle cast fungi genera in Maryland on pines are Lophodermium, which attacks a large number of pines but in particular Scots and Austrian, Ploioderma, which attacks most hard pines but especially Austrian, and Cyclaneusma, which attacks mostly Scots and Austrian pines.

Needle Cast Diseases of Pines Katy M. Mallams Conifer Diseases Hosts Nearly all pine species are susceptible to infection by one or more of the fungi that cause needle cast diseases. Most of the needle cast fungi are weak pathogens and have specific host preferences.

However, some host­pathogen combina­ tions can result in significant. Needle cast is a broad group of fungal diseases that cause conifers to shed needles.

The symptoms of needle cast first appear on needles as light green to yellow spots, which eventually turn red or brown. Growth of the fungal pathogen from the spots on the needle will cause the death of the entire needle.

LOPHODERMIUM NEEDLECAST (Lophodermium seditiosum). Lophodermium needlecast, is caused by a fungus and may attack all two- and three-needle pines as well as a few five-needleAustrian and red pines are among the more susceptible species. Although there are many species of Lophodermium which act as secondary pathogens and saprophytes, L.

seditiosum is the. Lophodermium comprises ascomycetous fungi that are both needle-cast pathogens and asymptomatic endophytes on a diversity of plant hosts.

It is distinguished from other genera in the family. Lophodermium needle cast, caused by pathogenic species of Lophodermium, occurs on numerous conifers. Other species of Lophodermium are saprophytes and occur only on dead needles.

Some of the more common species of Lophodermium, along with their hosts and pathogenic relationship, are shown in table Controlling Lophodermium needlecast on Scotch pine Christmas trees Author: Darroll D Skilling ; Thomas H Nicholls ; North Central Forest Experiment Station (Saint Paul, Minn.).

There are several species of Lophodermium and most are weak pathogens. Lophodermium seditiosum is the most virulent, and it most often attacks Austrian, red & Scots pine.

Very seldom does it affect Jack & white pine. Symptoms. Rhizosphaera needle cast is a fungal disease of spruce trees that causes needles to turn brown and fall off. Trees stressed from drought, poor planting practices or other factors are more likely to suffer from Rhizosphaera needle cast.

Trees can be protected from Rhizosphaera needle cast with properly timed fungicide applications. To reduce Lophodermium needlecast, plant long needle Scotch pines that are more resistant such as those from Germany, Belgian, Poland and Czechoslovakia; remove the branches of pine from cut stumps where spores are likely to be produced; and, make sure all the older pines have been removed from windbreaks near nurseries or plantations.

It is characterized by the presence of black transverse bands on the needles. This fungus is not a pathogen. Hunt () provides the most comprehensive review of needle-attacking fungi.
