Fungus Found In Indiana That Causes Thousand Cankers Disease
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says for the first time, they've detected the fungus that causes Thousand Cankers Disease in walnut trees.
They say they found it in two stressed trees in a black walnut plantation in Yellowwood State Forest in Brown County.
They also found the fungus on an insect other than a walnut twig beetle.
This follows a survey for insect pests by the U.S. Forest Service.
Indiana joins Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and eight
other states where they say the tree disease has been detected.
