In extreme cases the stem may be girdled at the base. Glyphosate is a herbicide used for killing grass, herbaceous and broadleaved woody weeds, for example in coniferous plantings. However, if applications are made during active growth of conifers or at too high a concentration many species may be damaged (plate 10). For example, larch and spruce plants turn white and then brown from the tips downwards. When damage is severe, resinbleeding from shoots and stems may occur. Glyphosate remains within the plant and symptoms can persist throughout the season following application of the herbicide.
At the same nursery Benzian planted poplar cuttings and described symptoms of copper deficiency on this species. The first signs are a blackening of the leaf tips developing into a more general marginal scorch of the youngest leaves. The edges of the leaves become taut and brittle forcing the whole leaf into a cup-like shape. Soon after this the whole leaf may develop an interveinal yellowing. Lime-induced chlorosis Symptoms of lime-induced chlorosis are commonly found on soils formed from chalk or limestone.
Under severe conditions symptoms may spread progressively down from the uppermost parts of a tree, dieback of shoots may develop and the tree may fmally die. Where trees are subject to exposure to strong winds symptoms are more severe on the windward side and such trees may take on a permanently one·sided appearance. Small woods may also take on a characteristic wedge shape. Young trees that have been transplanted from the nursery to their permanent site are susceptible to damage from water deficits probably because their root systems have been severed, thus rendering them less able to take up water.
