      Spruce trees turn orangish or pinkish when spruce needle rust is sporulating. In some areas of the northwoods, the blue spruce are turning pink or orange, and the black spruce and white spruce are turning pale yellow. Spruce needle cushion rust is a disease caused by a fungus belonging to the Basidiomycetes, a large group of fungi. It causes discoloration of the current-year needles, specifically, light green or yellowish green horizontal bands or stripes, and later, yellow-orange bands.

      As we mentioned, it affects conifer species for trees – especially the Colorado blue spruce. But it is also a threat to other conifer trees like white pines, Douglas fir, western hemlock and the Norway spruce. In SE Wisconsin, we have primarily seen Rhizosphaera Needle Cast in the Colorado blue spruce, especially in Waukesha and Ozaukee counties.

    There has long been a need for a compendium of common names for tree diseases in the Western United States and Western Canada, so the authors were asked by the Chairman of the Western International Forest Disease Work Confer- ence in to prepare such a . 3rd Revised Edition Field Guide to Pests of Managed Forests in British Columbia () Edited by: Jennifer Burleigh, Tim Ebata, and Harry Kope B.C.

Spruce needle rust, also known as Weir's cushion rust, is caused by the fungus Chrysomyxa weirii. Hosts Most spruce (Picea) species are susceptible to the disease but Colorado blue spruce (P. pungens) is particularly susceptible. Other common hosts include white spruce (P.

glauca), black spruce (P. mariana), red spruce (P. rubens) and Sitka spruce (P. sitchensis). Spruce broom rust or yellow witches' broom rust is a fungal plant disease caused by the basidiomycete fungus known as Chrysomyxa occurs exclusively in North America, with the most concentrated outbreaks occurring in northern Arizona and southern Colorado on blue and Engelmann spruce, as well as in Alaska on black and white spruce.

This disease alternates its life cycle between Family: Coleosporiaceae. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

This species of spruce needle rust does not have an alternate host. All necessary spore stages are found on spruce. During the winter, the fungus is maturing inside the current year’s needles and faint yellow bands with developing orange telia can easily be seen, particularly on lower branches (Figures 1 and 2).

Weir’s Cushion or Spruce Needle Rust: Chrysomyxa weirii Several species of fungi in the genus Chrysomyxa cause rust diseases, leading to varying levels of defoliation on spruce. One of concern to in the Northeastern U.S. is Chrysomyxa weirii, causing a disease known as Weir's cushion rust or more commonly as spruce needle Size: KB.

Spruce brooms are often associated with stem deformations, reduced increment growth, broken tops, and tree mortality. Rust brooms also serve as infection courts for decay fungi such as Phellinus pini contributing to increased levels of damage.

It is the Spruce-Labrador Tea Needle Rust, Chrysomyxa ledicola, a parasite of both spruce trees and a rhododendron-- a flowering woody shrub common to conifer understories the world over -- called Author: Jennifer Frazer.

Pine needle rust needs both pine needles and an alternate host of goldenrod or asters to complete its life cycle. Removing these alternate hosts near pines that suffer from the rust disease can break the cycle. Plant resistant species.

Replace susceptible pines with Colorado or Norway spruce. Stigmina and Rhizosphaera Needle Cast in Trees. These diseases primarily affect blue spruce. If you have seen trees affected by needle cast disease in the area, avoid planting this highly susceptible tree.

Instead, consider planting Norway spruce, which is resistant. White spruce and other conifers, like pine and fir, are also susceptible.

Needle drop naturally occurs seasonally in blue spruce. Some browning and shedding of inner needles is normal in the fall. During most years, the browning and needle drop is hardly noticeable.

If the inner needle browning is significant, however, a fungal disease may be the culprit. The most common disease of blue spruce is Rhizosphaera needle cast, a fungal disease that usually requires fungicides for management when it occurs.

Rhizosphaera needle cast causes needles to turn purplish brown and fall from the tree, usually from the inside of the tree working out and from the bottom of the tree working up. Orange spruce needle rust spores give the surface of Lake Clark an orange sheen in NPS Photo / J.

Chrysomyxa weirii, is a fungus that causes a disease, commonly known as Weir’s cushion rust, of spruce trees. It is mostly a cosmetic problem, causing yellowish spotting and banding on spruce needles, but in some cases can cause severe premature defoliation. Weir’s cushion rust can also disfigure and reduce growth of spruce trees by targeting the tender needles of newly emerging : Coleosporiaceae.

Spruce Needle Rust in Calgary. Spruce Needle Rust is the common name for several fungi in the Chrysomyxa family, which affect Spruce trees in Calgary.

This rust is easily identified by extensive needle drop and the pale yellow bands developing on the new needles in early summer. Spruce needle rust, caused by several different fungal species of the genus Chrysomyxa, is so named for the red, pink or orange color the disease displays on the needles of the blue spruce.

The disease first appears as a yellowing of current year needles near the tips of the branches, followed by the development of reddish-orange or white. Figure Needles die and drop, leaving the broom devoid of foliage during winter.

Most Chrysomyxa species are heteroecious and require more than one host to complete their life cycles.

The disease is caused by over twenty species of Coleosporium porium asterum is the most commonly identified. The fungi require two host plants to complete their life cycle: a pine tree, and a plant from the aster (Asteraceae) needle rust discolors needles.

Spruce needle rusts, Chrysomyxa spp. Various needle rusts may attack spruce but usually are not serious. Symptoms first appear as whitish blisters on the surface of the current season's needles in either late winter and early spring or midsummer, depending upon the particular type of rust fungus.Needle rust: Year-old needles are cast after turning rust colored in the spring.
