Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Elm Disease Is Reported Cresting in Central Iowa House Action The Cedar Rapids GaietU: Thurs., Aug. 1. 1971 By Harrison Wehcr AMES (1DPA) The entire state has sufferer! tremendous losses ol elm (rocs this year because of Dutch elm disease. "It really has been had." said Abe Epstein, associate professor and extension plant pathologist at Iowa Slate uni- "Dutch elm is cresting in Ihe central part of the state; it's probably at its he reported. The export on Dutch elm disease said there are not ma'iy elm trees left in the southern part of ihe stale where the disease has spread like an epidemic. It's now moving into the northern part of the state and, according to Epstein, the dis- ease will annihilate elm trees there unless preventive pro- grams are undertaken. Praised Cities A few cities in the northern part of Iowa have undertaken solid, comprehensive pi i- grams, he said. Epstein sin- gled out Charles City and Spencer for priase. Harrison Weber said, making them more sus- ceptible to Dutch elm disease. Each year for the las! three years, he continued, ohn trees have had an adverse growing period because of scorched conditions. Since 1957 "We've had high rales of in- fection these last several years. Thai's prelly much a failure to move in and destroy the breeding slock. Beetles breed in dead elm wood with bark attached. If they are not removed and destroyed, we'll get an increase in the beetle Epstein related.

Take DCS Moines, for example Some elm trees heen removed in the capital city at an estimat- ed cost of million. There are only elm trees left in Drs Muines, most of them in Heavcrdale in the northwest part of the city. The state conservation com- mission makes no attempt to remove diseased elm trees from ihe wild areas under its j jurisdiction. The cost, say j commission officials, is just i too prohibitive. The commis- sion does remove trees that have Dutch elm that are lo- cated in picnic areas.
