Plane wilt (also known as canker stain of plane) is a serious disease of plane trees (Platanus spp.) caused by the ascomycete fungus Ceratocystis platani. This disease affects the water-conducting vessels of plane trees causing wilting of the leaves and staining of the wood. The disease is usually fatal, with young trees of a diameter of 3040 cm being killed within 2 to 3 years after infection and older, more vigorous trees within 4 to 5 years
