Exotic nematode found in pine trees in Melbourne, Victoria.

Christchurch, New Zealand: New Zealand Institute of Forestry.

In February 2000, an exotic nematode belonging to the genus Bursaphelenchus was found in wood samples taken from a dying pine (Pinus halepensis) tree in the Melbourne suburb of Williamstown in Australia. This is thought to be the first report of Bursaphelenchus in Victoria. This paper also presents some symptoms of Bursaphelenchus infestation, the vectors spreading Bursaphelenchus and the practice of burning the wood or deep burial to kill nematodes or any potential vectors as control measures.
