Cypress Tree Removal

Are your Cypress Trees dead or have dieback?  They may have Canker Disease.  The dieback is now quite common in trees  in south and west Gippsland, the Mornington Peninsula and the Western District.

The DEPI have found trees affected by various fungal pathogens, in particular cypress canker (Seiridium species), but also Botryosphaeria, Phomopsis and Pestalotiopsis species.

These fungi can all cause dieback symptoms, especially when environmental conditions have placed trees under stress. They are a mixture of primary pathogens (which can attack intact plants) and secondary pathogens (which usually attack plants at sites where another infection already exists).

DEPI believes that the last drought weakened the cypresses and left them vulnerable to infection. Disease development has also been favoured over the past 12-18 months by waterlogging and/or warm, humid conditions in some areas.

Cypress Canker is the most significant of the pathogens currently affecting exotic conifers in Victoria. Unfortunately there is no proven cure for this disease.  It is recommended that effected trees be removed and burnt.

Impala Plant Hire are the CANKER KILLERS, we’ll sort them out for you.
