Plano TX - Anthracnose Management

Anthracnose can be caused by fungi that are closely related. Although anthracnose illnesses are not typically fatal or permanent, they can make trees more visible and make them more vulnerable for other pests. Plano is home to many leaf-shedding plants, including oaks, maples, maples, dogwood, and sometimes walnut. These trees are prime candidates for anthracnose infestation.

Anthracnose fungal symptoms include wounds on the branches of trees, reduced twig production, and premature leaf shedding. If leaves turn black soon after the winter months, it is possible for untrained individuals to mistakenly conclude that they are frostbite. Plano-certified arborists will be able to determine the stage at which anthracnose is progressing.

How to Treat Anthracnose Fungal Disease

Planetree trimming services can ensure the right pruning. Chemical treatments may not be necessary unless a tree suffers from thinning, loss or damage over many years. While anthracnose cannot be eliminated by using fungicides to kill it, they can be used for the preservation and maintenance of healthy trees. Plano arborists can help determine the right type of fungicide to use and when it should.
