Do your plants look like this?

Bush Trimming Greenville SC
Bacterial Leaf Scorch

Bacterial Leaf Scorch (BLS) results from bacteria clogging a tree’s xylem (water transporting system), which prevents water and nutrients from reaching the tree’s roots, branches, and leaves. As a result, the leaves will brown around the edges until the whole leaf is scorched.

Black Knot

Your cherry, plum, or apricot trees are at risk for black knot, a fungal infection that attacks new twig growth or wounds on a tree. The infected area will change colors throughout the year until it turns black in autumn. The knots eventually expand and can girdle the twigs, branches, and the whole tree, resulting in your tree’s death.

Hypoxylon Canker

Hypoxylon canker is a fungus that affects shade trees (such as oaks and hickories) that have already been stressed due to drought, disease, or damage, particularly in an urban environment. Prevention is the best cure for this fungus, and your shade trees will benefit most from regular deep root fertilization.
