Tree disease problems



This fungus disease causes leaf, shoot, and bud blight on many deciduous trees including sycamore, dogwood, oak, and maple. Favored by cool, rainy weather in spring, anthracnose will weaken and can kill highly susceptible species like dogwood. Management of this disease includes fungicide treatments in spring and maintaining plant health through proper fertilization, mulching, and irrigation during droughts.
