Macrocarpa clones at Ribbonwood, Canterbury, expressing nutrient deficiency as slow growth and yellowing of foliage, with leyland cones in the background growing better and with green foliage
Stem canker affecting form of this clone
Stem canker infection in a young Ferndown tree. At this age not all trees of the same clone were affected by canker in this stand.
Cypress tree completely killed by canker disease
Cypress clone killed by canker with perfectly healthy trees immediately adjacent
This clone shows heavy fluting without any evidence of canker
Serious fluting caused by serious stem canker disease
