DescriptionAlthough many diseases attack aspen, relatively few kill or seriously injure living trees. The common leaf diseases, in general, are widely distributed throughout the range of aspen, whereas there are subtle differences in distribution between the important decay fungi, and apparently entirely different areas of distribution of major cankercausing organisms. However, there still are large gaps in knowledge of the disease organisms and their influence on natural and regenerated stands.
