Trees are the natural landscape of our world. They’re beautiful, provide shade, and produce delicious fruits. But, one of the things they do best is help us keep breathing clean, healthy air.
Whether you're doing routine landscaping maintenance, raising Christmas trees, or planting an orchard, it’s a big project. Protect your investment when you educate yourself about the major diseases your trees may be susceptible to.
Where you live matters when you’re talking trees. The trees indigenous to your area will denote the diseases you’ll need to be aware of. However, nationwide, there are a few conditions that every tree may fall prey to.
Most people think about blight as being something they fight in their vegetable gardens. Similarly, when trees get blight, it can present with varied symptoms. Tip blight only affect the very end of the needles or leaves, while a root blight may slowly work its way up the entire tree.
Color change in tree leaves isn’t always a thing of beauty. If you notice spots occurring on the leaves of a common yard tree, you may be dealing with a spore-based rust condition. The spots often have a yellow hue with what appears to be a small, red dot in the middle.
There’s nothing better than picking a piece of truly fresh fruit off a tree and biting down into its juicy goodness. However, to get that experience, you’ll need to tend to your fruit trees with care. Fruit producing trees are highly susceptible to many conditions. Some simply create an ugly aesthetic, while others can put your season’s fruit in peril, so pay close attention throughout the season.
In the south, lethal yellow of palm is a major concern. True to its name, it kills palm trees if not prevented or treated. Even worse, the cause of this condition is carried from tree-to-tree by hopping insects. At the first sight of any symptoms, call a horticulturalist immediately as antibiotics can be effective if the issue is caught early.
