The ecologically important endemic woodland species Eucalyptus gomphocephala (Tuart) (Fig. 1), is in severe decline. Many trees have died over large areas in the last decade. The potential of phosphite, nutrient and insecticide treatments to reverse the decline in tuart health were assessed as methods for (a) controlling the decline, and (b) diagnosing possible causal agents.
