Does your Pandanus look sick? It could have Pandanus Dieback!

It might be Pandanus Dieback. One of the north coast's iconic plants, the coastal Pandanus tree Pandanustectorius, is under local threat from dieback caused by a flatid insect known as the Pandanus planthopper jamella australiae.  The planthoppers exude honeydew; this encourages mould growth and rotting of terminal growth points.      MBRC treated the Pacific Harbour landscape pandanus in June 2018.
