Items of Interest:

Laurel Wilt Disease Confirmed in Trees in Greene County (Sep 19, 2013)
Alabama Forestry Commission.
According to officials with the Alabama Forestry Commission (AFC), the existence of laurel wilt disease has now been positively identified in Greene County. After "wilting" sassafras trees were recognized by agency personnel along Highway 43 in the southern portion of the county, stem samples were collected from one of these symptomatic trees and sent to the USDA Forest Service laboratory for verification, where results confirmed the presence of laurel wilt fungus (Raffaelea lauricola). This confirmation makes the third county in Alabama, where the disease was detected in Marengo and Mobile counties in 2011.

White-Nose Syndrome of Bats Confirmed in Alabama (Mar 14, 2012)
Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
White-nose syndrome (WNS), the disease that has killed millions of bats in eastern North America, has been confirmed in bats in the Russell Cave complex in Jackson County, marking the arrival of the disease in Alabama.

First Cases of Laurel Wilt Disease Confirmed in Alabama (Sep 27, 2011)
Alabama Forestry Commission.
Officials with the Alabama Forestry Commission are concerned but not surprised by the news that laurel wilt disease has now been found in two counties in Alabama. This non-native invasive insect-disease complex primarily affects trees in the laurel family, with redbay, swampbay, camphor, and sassafras being especially susceptible.
