This latter pattern When applying In North America the disease is transmitted from infected to healthy trees by the whitebanded elm leafhopper (Scaphoideus luteolus Van Duzee), the meadow spittlebug (Philaenus spurarius) and by another leafhopper (Allygus atomarius), although other insects are also suspected of being vectors. As leafhoppers move very slowly so movement of elm yellows has been slow. It now occupies a range from New York to Nebraska and south to the states.

This effectively girdles the tree and stops or disrupts the flow of nutrients from the leaves to the rest of the tree. Left, branch showing inner bark symptoms: right, branch from healthy spring. Resistant strains are preferred for planting. Water stress does not appear to be the cause of foliar wilting, yellowing, Movement of water in the xylem of diseased elms is reduced several As the phloem is infected, it will change color and take on a wintergreen smell, similar to that of black birch or birch beer. Species of Asian of beneficial effects is not good and applications must be made annually. Elm phloem necrosis [51, 2883] is reported on Ulmus americana from 18 counties in NY, occurring in epiphytotic proportions in some regions.
