    Pine wilt

    I recently lost a Scots pine to pine wilt. Will this disease spread to the White Pines or the Spruce tree or the Juniper that I have in my yard?.

    Also at some point I would love to plant a peach tree in my yard. However will a Peach tree thrive near White Pines and Juniper? If not, how far away from these trees would a Peach tree need to be planted?

    RE: Pine wilt

    Not sure about the Pine Wilt spreading but there's probably a good chance that it will.

    With the Peach tree, it would be best to plant it on the south side of a building (keeps it protected from winter winds)

    But you can plant one anywhere in full sun. And if your Junipers and White Pines are small, remember that someday they will be much taller than your peach tree and may shade it out, so move the peach far enough from other trees that it will be in full sun most of the time.

    RE: Pine wilt

    Here in Nebraska the main trees affected by pine wilt are non-native Austrian & Scots pine. Every once in a while pine wilt will effect a native white pine tree, but this is rare. I would still plant white pine, but avoid planting the other two.

    Pine wilt is caused by the pine sawyer beetle and subsequent pinewood nematode that follows.

    Please take a look at this Cooperative Extension publication produced by the University of Missouri, Kansas State, Iowa State, and the Univeristy of Nebraska.

    As for replanting conifers lost to pine wilt the key is to plant great diversity. Donít plant rows and rows of the same types of trees.

    Foresters recommend replanting no more than 30% of any one family, 20% of any one genus and 10% of any one species. Some landowners will decide to take an even more conservative approach - having no more than 10% of their trees be from any one genus and 5% from any one species.

    With great diversity of species one will spread the risk from future pests and disease.
