Diagnosing Anthracnose

Habitat grounds are investigated and the tree is closely examined by the experienced plant pathologist who will present the tree evaluation report after confirmed diagnosis of anthracnose infection. Leaf deformities and blotches, early foliage loss, a general thinning throughout the canopy, cankers and broken limbs are symptoms of this fungal pathogen. Tiny bumps on the underside of foliage along the veins are definite confirmation of anthracnose presence. The Fort Worth arbor care professional will determine the immediate treatment necessary to eliminate this disease and customize the maintenance plan required to prevent further infection.

Treatment Of Anthracnose

Severely infected trees, ground debris, and broken limbs must be promptly removed by a professional tree service to eliminate desired hosts for anthracnose fungi. Fungicide treatments scheduled and applied by an arborist that treats sick trees will restore the fullness to eye-catching statement trees.
