Brief

Turkish filbert is a medium-sized tree native to southwest Asia and southeast Europe. It is well-adapted to urban settings, although its use as an ornamental in the United States has been limited. In 2010 and 2011, Turkish filberts at a site in Boulder, CO, exhibited leaf spotting, partial defoliation, and shoot dieback. Xanthomonas arboricola pv. corylina and Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae were consistently isolated from leaf spots whereas X. arboricola pv. corylina was the only bacterium isolated from blight shoots. This is the first report of X. arboricola pv. corylina on Turkish Filbert in Colorado.
