Armillaria root rot
Armillaria root rot is an important fungal disease caused by the genus Armillaria, which attacks the roots and base of trees. It typically leads to white rot and other symptoms such as poor growth, yellow foliage, dieback of twigs and branches, and eventual death of the plant.
Signs of damage:
Wilted, downward-hanging foliage is often the first obvious symptom of Armillaria root rot. Other symptoms include foliage yellowing, leaf drop, and dieback of upper limbs. During the rainy fall and winter, groups of short-lived mushrooms often grow around the base of Armillaria-infected trees.
