- ... Fusarium circinatum Nirenberg & O’Donnell (teleomorph = Gibberella circinata) is the causal agent of pitch canker disease of pines. Since 2004 it has been present in Europe, particularly in northern Spain, affecting P. radiata and P. pinaster in plantations and nurseries.

Thus far, efforts to reduce local spread have focused on rouging of infected pines and sanitation to eliminate local sources of inoculum. Although the host range of F. circinatum was thought to be limited to pines and Douglas-fir, recent studies in California indicate ...
