Page Body Text:
Invasive pathogens like Dutch elm disease can move through various methods of transportation. The vector is generally an associated pest that can move the disease tree to tree but fungi spores or graphed tissue can allow a pathogen to spread in a small area as well. Some pathogens like bur oak blight and thousand canker disease are actually native to the US but have moved beyond the general area originally found in to other parts of the country. The artificial movement of tree species by humans across the country has aggravated the spread of pathogens and created pockets of stressed trees, which are more susceptible to pathogen attack.
