Your local tree arborist in Atlanta will tell you that wet spring weather creates a perfect environment for fungal diseases to develop on your trees. Watch this video to learn how tree pruning and prevention measures can keep diseases from affecting your trees.
Brown blossom blight will kill flowers, twigs, and leaves on your tree. To prevent this, plant resistant tree varieties or give your tree preventative treatments like tree pruning in the early spring. Another common tree disease seen in the spring is Sycamore anthracnose, which causes blighted leaves, leaf drop, and dead twigs.
When it comes to tree care, disease prevention is critical. When you see disease on your trees, pruning the diseased parts and culling out some branches to create more space for air flow can help treat or manage the disease.
