Dept: Dieback may attack more of forest

(1977) Dept: Dieback may attack more of forest. 1977. [Publication] [Special Collections]


According to the Western Australian Forests Department, jarrah dieback disease may spread to a further 2,700 square kilometres of State Forest.
In a plan for the management of the State's 19,000 square kilometres of forest areas over the next five years, the Forests Department estimates that a total of 24 percent of all State forest could be hit by the disease.
Major outbreaks of the disease were on the western part of the northern plateau and the Donnybrook sunk land where the soil moisture and temperature favoured the fungus growth.
The department proposes a seven-point management strategy to combat the spread of the disease.
