I just cut down a small infected bay. Do the root shoots carry P. ramorum?

Bay shoots do not carry P. ramorum because the pathogen is not systemic in bay.  Each leaf is infected independently. Additionally, there is no root infection in most P. ramorum hosts,  particularly California bay laurel.  However, when bays re-sprout, they may be re-infected.
