    Hypoxylon canker of aspen, which is caused by a different fungus. The canker is caused by one or more species of fungi in the genus Hypoxylon. Found in the outer-bark areas of living and healthy trees, the fungus is normally of little consequence. However, it . Hypoxylon pruinatum. The disease ranges across southern Canada and northern United States and most probably throughout the range of the aspen. It is easily spotted in more advanced stages because the trees are girdled, killed, and broken at the position of the canker (Fig. ).

    Young cankers appear as distinctive “yellowish-orange” areas of branch and trunk sections. “appearing as if Crayon was rubbed over the bark.” As infection progresses (over years) trunk sections will become blistered and raised or swollen, progression continues with patches sloughing off, exposing a blackened and crumbling interior.   Hypoxylon canker of aspen, caused by the fungus Hypoxylon mammatum, is one of the most serious diseases of aspen in the United States. The disease abounds east of the Rocky Mountains wherever aspen occurs. Of the native poplars, quaking aspen is very susceptible, bigtooth is moderately susceptible, and balsam poplar is rarely infected.

    But, on aspen trees, small wounds on branches can serve as entry points for stain, decay and canker fungi, especially the fungus that causes hypoxylon canker. Leaf loss on aspens can reduce growth rates but aspens are generally regarded as very tolerant of defoliation.

Mill., and the presence of branches on an aspen stem. Two test areas were established in sprout aspen stands in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Pry away a section of the bark of an aspen tree with a grafting knife if it has odd, pin-shaped holes in it. If you examine the branches of an aspen tree with spotting leaves, you may find a canker, which is an advanced infection caused by leaf spot.

Prune away twigs with distorted shapes from the ends of aspen branches using pruning shears.
