Report on the grafiosis of the elms and destruction of a Eucalyptus by Prof. Miguel Pereira Coutinho
The massif of elms, which had been planted by Weiss in 1866 and reinforced by Azevedo Coutinho in 1958, exhibited signs of elm grafiosis (graphium ulmi).

After considering the measures that these technicians advocated, which proved to be more palliative than curative, António Barreto proposed to replace the trees with nettle trees.
