Spring Disease

Spring is fast approaching and with it, comes the threat of potentially serious disease outbreaks. Two key diseases that occur during this season are:

Anthracnose: a fungal foliar disease to which sycamore, oak (especially white), and maple are highly susceptible. This fungus will cause defoliation. The onset of symptoms usually occurs from May to mid-June. 

Fireblight: a bacterial disease that causes wilting and blackening of blossoms and leaves on trees. This disease occurs early in the season and can produce symptoms that persist throughout the summer. The first sign of firelight occurs May through early June depending on your geographic location.

The best way to know if your trees may be infected by one of these diseases is to contact your local Bartlett arborist.
