DescriptionTanoak (Lithocarpus densiflorus) is highly susceptible to sudden oak death caused by Phytophthora ramorum. Symptoms include dying crowns, bleeding cankers, and, eventually, death of infected trees. The cause of mortality is not well understood, but we showed previously that naturally infected mature trees have reduced sap flow and reduced hydraulic conductivity. One possible mechanism for this is the presence of tyloses in xylem vessels formed in response to P. ramorum infection.
