Verticillum Wilt

Asked November 6, 2018, 11:38 AM EST

I believe that the maple trees in this area have Verticillum Wilt. Is there a treatment that is best for the soil in a shady lawn area. Loosing Maple tree every year as it spreads tree to tree.

You need to determine whether or not you have verticillium wilt. Please read Verticillium Wilt Refresher and refer to the MSU soil and plant pathology lab page for information on how to send them a sample to analyze.
Unfortunately if you , in fact, have verticillium wilt infecting your maples, there is no cure. Refer to the article mentioned above for steps to take.
