When considering how to manage and prevent wood rot disease in lemons,
a grower should consider both the short- and long-term steps. The first
of the short-term steps is to prune out diseased wood. This step is critical,
and should occur as soon as the damage is noticed, particularly following
wind storms, hurricanes or freeze damage. Since the wood rot fungi thrive
and grow when temperatures are high, damaged branches may be easily noticed
during the late summer and fall.
