Laurel Wilt


Laurel wilt has been confirmed in several locations in Cobb County. It is a disease of woody plants in the Laurel (Lauraceae) family. In our neck of the woods, it will primarily affect sassafras trees and common spicebush. This disease is introduced into host by the nonnative redbay ambrosia beetle (Xyleborus glabratus). For more information please contact Cobb County ANR Agent Hallie Harriman at hallie.harriman@uga.edu. You can also join us on September 16, at 1:00pm for a free laurel wilt webinar that will also offer one ISA cue credit. Follow this link to register.  https://bit.ly/2QaawVR
