Could Thousand Cankers Disease be coming our way?
Thousand cankers disease is a newly discovered disease of walnuts including black walnut. The disease results from the walnut twig beetle (Pityophthorus juglandis) hosting a canker producing fungus in the genus Geosmithia (proposed name Geosmithia morbida). The disease was thought to be restricted to the western United States where over the past decade it has been involved in several large scale die-offs of walnut, particularly black walnut, Juglans nigra. Unfortunately, it has now been found in eastern Tennessee.
