Urban Tree: Diseases
A component of the Georgia Master Gardener urban forestry training program.
The broad subject of tree diseases is broken down into two subgroups based on the causal agents involved. There are diseases caused by biotic or living organisms. These include: bacteria, virus, fungi and others. Then there are diseases or disease-like symptoms that are caused by abiotic or non-living agents. Abiotic or non-living factors include: light, temperature, water, gases, etc.
