A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

Bacterial Leaf Scorch (BLS) is caused by a xylem-limited bacterium Xylella fastidiosa. This gram-negative bacterium causes decline and death of many herbaceous and woody plant hosts due to restriction of water flow from the roots to the crown of the plant.
