Recent Examples of cambium from the Web
While scientists are working on a long-term solution, woodpeckers are busy rooting out the insect’s grubs, which bury themselves beneath the trees’ bark, feeding on cambium.
Anderson said the key is to read labels, wear appropriate clothing — including long pants and shirts, shoes and socks and chemical-resistant gloves — and apply just a little herbicide on the cambium, which is the outer layer of the stump.
Eventually the cambium layer will be severed and no more phloem (layer that carries sugars from the leaves down to the roots) will be produced, so the plant will die.
If there is a cambium layer, the tree is still alive.
