Tree disease problems



This fungus disease causes premature defoliation of spruce, Douglas fir, and pine. Chronic infections will devitalize trees, causing branch dieback, especially on the lower portions of the tree. Although treatments are available to suppress this disease, planting conifers in full sun with adequate spacing to allow development is the key to disease prevention.
