DescriptionRecent research has shown that prompt removal of diseased elms reduces the incidence of Dutch elm disease more than sanitation practice that allows diseased elms to remain standing into the dormant season. The key to prompt removal is repeated surveys to detect diseased elms as early as possible. Intensive sanitation can save more elms and cost less than the more conventional sanitation practice. A 3-year case history demonstrates savings of 25 percent in total cost and an additional 92 elms per thousand.
