Sudden Oak Death May Be Spreading Throughout State

They found yellowish maple leaves in the foothills last fall, but haven´t matched DNA taken from the diseased leaves to the pathogen that causes sudden oak death. The disease has killed tens of thousands of California´s prized tan and black and coast live oaks.
