The Q&A Archives: Verticillium Wilt

Question: Does verticillium wilt affect maple trees?

Answer: Verticillium wilt is a soilborne fungus that attacks and infects plant roots, grows through the vascular system, and eventually reaches all the tissues. Infected tissues die. Maples are susceptible to verticillium wilt, as are oaks, raspberries, roses, tomato plants, and many others. The fungus is persistent in the soil, so choose resistant plants rather than replanting maples in the same spot.
