DescriptionPitch canker disease causes a multitude of problems in all life stages of southern pines. It occurs in most southern states and can affect mature stands, plantations, seed orchards, and nurseries. It is now also known to occur in California and at least 6 other countries. Recent occurrences in the western Gulf region are typical of those farther east. Long-term solutions to the disease should include exploitation of genetic resistance in hosts.
