Lethal Palm Disease

Fusarium Wilt of Queen Palms and Washingtonia Palms by Eric Robinson, co-owner McGuire's Beautiful Outdoors, 10746 N. Land O' Lakes Blvd., Land O' Lakes, FL 34638


usarium Wilt of Queen Palms and Mexican Fan Palms (Washingtonia) has made its way into our area. It is a devastating palm disease that is caused by the Fusarium Oxysporum f.sp. Palmarum Fungus and is widespread throughout Florida. Affected palm trees have been observed mostly in mature landscapes. This fungal disease blocks the water-transporting (xylem) tissues, causing the leaves to wilt, turn yellow, and then brown. Eventually the entire leaf dies. The symptoms spread progressively from the lowest to the uppermost leaves in a canopy until the tree dies. The spear leaf is the last leaf to die. The Palms often die quickly, usually within 2-3 months after the initial symptoms are observed. The decline is so quick that the necrotic fronds

do not necessarily droop or break and bend down around the trunk. They remain relatively rigid. The overall appearance of the canopy is very characteristic of this disease. Wind Blown spores are suspected to be the primary method of transferring this disease, but it is important to know that the exact cause is not known. There is also currently no cure for this lethal disease. Disease Management Once the palm is affected by this disease, there is no cure and there is currently no method to prevent the disease from occurring. The disease appears to be spread primarily by airborne spores, moved by wind, and possibly birds or insects. It is important to know that a palm can appear healthy (symptomless) but still

be infected because the disease has not developed to the point that the symptoms are being expressed. Pruning should be restricted to the removal of dead or dying leaves only. Severe pruning weakens palms and may increase the risk of pathogen transmission. Pruning should be viewed as a risk factor for this disease and not as a benefit to the palm. It is very important to remember that this is a disease without a cure. Palms infected with Fusarium Wilt will eventually die and have to be removed and destroyed immediately. Based on other Fusarium Wilt diseases of palms, it is recommended that a Queen Palm or Washingtonia Palm not be planted back into the site where one of these species has died from Fusarium Wilt. •

Other Important Information Regarding Palm Disease There are various other Palm disease that are also worth noting in our area including Texas Phoenix Palm Decline and Ganoderma Butt Rot of Palms. Texas Phoenix Palm Decline

• Caused by an unculturable bacterium that has no cell wall • Is a fatal, systemic disease that kills palms relatively quickly • Spread naturally to palms by sap-feeding insects, such as planthoppers Ganoderma Butt Rot of Palms

• Caused by Ganoderma Zonatum which degrades the lignin in the lower 4’-5’ of the trunk • It does not cause a soft rot, so the trunk seems hard • All palms are considered hosts of this fungus • Symptoms may include wilting or a general decline

What Do I Look For?

The Early Stages

• Leaflets on one side of the petiole (central leaf stem) are yellow or brown but a healthy green on the opposite side. • A reddish brown or dark brown stripe runs along the petiole and rachis (connects leaflets to the petiole) of the leaf. • Discoloration caused by the infection is evident on a cross section of the leaf.

The Late Stages • The entire canopy dies. • Because the disease spreads so quickly, the dead leaves do not droop.

Rotary Club of New Tampa Collects Bikes for God’s Pedal Power Ministry

For the fourth consecutive year, the Rotary Club of New Tampa volunteered to collect bicycles for God’s Pedal Power Ministry. On Saturday, January 9 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., members of the club assisted with the collection drive which was held at Oliver’s Cycle Sports in Tampa. The annual event netted 53 bicycles (a new record!) for donation to the North Tampa group that since 1997 has provided free, usually refurbished, bicycles to people who can’t afford them. Providing a way to get to work 10

and otherwise take care of life’s business is central to the group’s purpose. “We were overwhelmed by the community’s response in providing bicycles to this worthwhile cause,” said Tom Gruber, a Rotary Club of New Tampa member who organized the annual service project. “We continue to be supportive of the group’s efforts with this important community outreach project.” •

Enthusiasts and Owners of Orphaned Cars Invited to Winter Florida AutoFest Weekend Car Show to Spotlight Classics Left Homeless

The great part about Florida is that for car lovers, there is something for them at every turn. Whether it’s an evening cruise in, day long affair or something bigger, the Sunshine State certainly has an abundance of classic cars and owners looking to show them off as well as enthusiasts looking to catch a glimpse of the rare and unique pieces of history. With that in mind, Carlisle Events and Winter Florida AutoFest are pleased to not only announce the return of its two day classic car show, but to announce that the theme of the show will be orphaned cars, with the display hosted by a local Kaiser-Frazer club. What exactly is an orphaned car? It can best be described as any marque of motor vehicle built by a manufacturer that has discontinued business entirely. This is not to be confused with a discounted 12

brand of car from a still existing manufacturer. Orphan cars carry a certain wow factor in today’s world of collector cars as their owners and those who enjoy them have a bond that keeps the brandless brands going strong. Since the car became a mainstream mode of transportation in the early 1900s, independent manufacturers fought to become big players in the market, which lead to over 1,800 automotive producers in the United States alone! Many of these unique and noble brands went away within a few

years or combined with others to survive. Today, only a small percentage of the world’s car manufactures have endured this competitive market. Examples of orphan cars include the DeLorean, Packard, AMC branded cars like the Eagle and Javelin, Studebaker, Kaiser-Frazer, Willys, Henry J, Tucker and Baker just to name a few. Orphans are both foreign and domestic, with the British Austin Healey, German Horch and the Spanish Hispano-Suiza coming to mind. In all, there are many orphans out there and that’s why this

with my Studebaker. This was something special to me and as I progressed within the hobby, the uncommon brands were foremost in my search for old cars,” added Miller. “Many people don’t realize that there were hundreds of brands of cars in the early days of the automobile, some of those companies only built a few cars but many more built hundreds and even thousands of cars before going out of business. While many car companies survived to this day and we recognize those current brands, collecting and showcasing an orphan car has an unexplainable excitement to it.

event is welcoming one and all to showcase these gems! “My first venture into the car hobby was a 1953 Studebaker two door hardtop,” said Carlisle Events co-owner Bill Miller. “Unbeknownst to me it would soon become an orphan car. This was 1961 and by 1966 Studebaker no longer made cars,” continued Miller. “The Studebaker brand first adorned wagons in the 1800’s and eventually made some of the finest automobiles. While all my buddies owned Chevy’s and Ford’s, I was kind of the odd guy out

Finding that long forgotten brand hidden away and bringing it back to life is what this display should be all about.” By being part of the Winter AutoFest car show not only can you see or showcase an orphaned car, but you can also experience all types of classics spanning automotive history. Hundreds of cars will gather at the SUN ‘n FUN complex and it doesn’t matter if you’re spending $35 to show or $10 to look, the weekend is a great bang for the buck. Complete information on the show as well as being able to register in advance is available at •
