    In the U.S., 20 tree diseases account for the bulk of tree decay and death. The top three include American Chestnut Blight, an incurable fungus that has all but wiped out commercial chestnut trees; Amillaria Root Rot, a fungus that attacks hardwoods and softwoods and kills shrubs; and Anthracnose and Leaf Spot Diseases, which attack hardwoods like sycamores, white oaks, black walnuts, and dogwoods, making it especially threatening to shade trees in urban areas.
