DescriptionMaple decline (i.e. maple blight, maple dieback) has periodically caused significant losses of sugar maple in northern hardwood forests. The first major outbreak of maple decline was reported in northeastern Wisconsin and upper Michigan in the late 1950's. The disease reappeared in the same general area during the late 1970's and early 1980's.
