I lost one of my Cleveland Pear trees last year and now this year I seem to be losing another one. The leaves start to turn yellow and they get black on the types. I thought it might be fire blight, but I do not notice any cankers. Any help would be appreciated. I have 13 of these across the front of my property so I would like to contain this issue.
Fireblight symptoms do not always include cankers at the tips of the tree. The symptoms can appear water-soaked and darkened, then quickly droop, shrivel, and turn black. It is also possible that this is a different disease or problem altogether. Bartlett can inspect the tree if you would like.
