The last of my six Mimosa trees is dying from mimosa wilt. Does this mean that I can never plant these trees again, the fungus affected trees in separate sections of my property, and I was wondering if after a period of time the fungus might be gone.
According to the Fl department of Agriculture and Consumer Service/Forest Management the Mimosa wilt is caused by the fungus-
Fusaruim oxysporum f. sp. perniciosum. It is spread by infected soil or moving infected wood or seedlings from place to place. They suggest that you take preventive measures by treating soils were there has been a problem or may be a problem with an appropiate biocide (methyl bromide, itc) before planting any mimosa in an area of previous infection. Also when pruning an infected trees, burn cuttings and sterilize pruning shears and other tools before using them on other trees or plants. I got this information by goggling Mimosa tree wilt.
