    Description

    Extensive mortality of red bay (Persea borbonia [L.] Spreng) has been observed in the coastal plains of South Carolina and Georgia since 2003. Dead and dying trees exhibit wilt-like symptoms, and a fungus (an Ophiostoma sp.) and an exotic ambrosia beetle (Xyleborus glabratus [Eichhoff]) have been implicated in the disease. Additional information about this disease is provided by Rabaglia and Fraedrich (this proceedings). Sassafras (Sassafras albidum [Nutt.] Nees) mortality was also observed at several sites in Georgia during the spring of 2005. Wilted sassafras exhibited sapwood discoloration, and X. glabratus and the Ophiostoma sp. were also associated with these trees.
