Ganoderma Killing Palms

Ganoderma îs a fungal disease that has killed many palm trees in The Vines. While all palms are susceptible, queen and clumping palms appear to be most vulnerable. There are no treatments and it is always fatal.

Signs of disease include wilting fronds on mature palms and the formation of conks at the base.

The conks begin as small white bumps and quickly grow into large brackets. As the disease progresses the palm rots at the soil line leaving it weak and prone to falling in a storm. Prompt removal of the tree and proper disposal of the conks is necessary to prevent spreading the disease.

The conks contain millions of spores. To mitigate dispersal of the spores, place a plastic bag around the conk before breaking it off. Seal the bag and put it in the trash.

Remove conks prior to removing the tree. Stump and root removal are recommended. Watch for new conks after removal and dispose of them a per above.

If you notice a palm on VCA property that you suspect has ganoderma, please contact Pegasus or a VCA Board member.
