The St. Catharines Standard newspaper for 25 July reports that the
total number of fruit trees in the Niagara Peninsula known to be
infected with plum pox is now 27 on nine farms, mostly near Niagara-
on-the-Lake with one tree near St. Catharines.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency expects that 30,000 trees on 180
acres will be destroyed next month in an effort to wipe out the

The infected trees were imported in 1997 from Pennsylvania, which has
removed 700 acres of trees in its eradication efforts.
