DescriptionLandowners and managers have been seeking ways to protect susceptible oak (Quercus) species and tanoak (Lithocarpus densiflorus) from sudden oak death (SOD) caused by Phytophthora ramorum. Because disease epidemiology differs between tanoaks and susceptible oaks, we are testing different control strategies appropriate for different forest types. The disease management studies described here test whether various management techniques will be effective when applied in the field at the stand scale.
