The trumpet tree known for its delicate roots than infected by soil fungi (Verticillium) from the ground. Once the fungi inside the roots they will get through the transport system throughout the entire plant spread. Such systemic spread of the branches is done through the vascular bundles by the multiplication of the fungus will eventually shut lips. This will sapcirculatie and water sealed. Externally you can get an early sometimes see change and leaf arrangement at a later stage occurs bladverwelking and leaf yellowing on. If you are an affected branch afsnoeit is a light brown discoloration of the vascular tissue to see.

When a diseased tree, more and more branches, leaves and flowers fade. Leaves turn yellow, turn brown and die. The roots are also brown and dying. Sometimes additional Bolcatalpagevormd new roots.

If you prefer not to place sensitive Catalpa put more though, make sure that there are other trees susceptible to this fungus. We refer to Acer (maple), Cercis (Judas tree), Fraxinus (ash), Robinia (Acacia), Tilia (linden), Ulmus (elm), Vitis (grape), Berberis (barberry), Cotinus (wig tree), Erica (heather), Ligustrum (privet), Rhus (velvet tree), Ribes, Syringa (lilac) and Viburnum (Snowball bushes).


Affected trees with roots and part of the surrounding ground completely.
The place where the diseased tree was digging deep and thoroughly drain.
