A large project where about 3000 plane trees were pruned and checked for Massaria.
The infestation is virtually invisible from the ground because it occurs at the top, so inspection must be done using an aerial platform (or climbing).
Massaria is caused by the fungus Splanchnonema platani and affects branches. This fungal infection causes rapid onset of wood rot in branches of sycamores resulting in branch breakage.
This can cause serious public safety problems. Therefore, control of plane trees is necessary.
