Tree Care Pros provides Fort Worth clients both commercial and residential anthracnose treatment in Fort Worth, TX and surrounding Dallas Fort Worth regions. Anthracnose is a fungal disease in the genus Colletotrichum, a group of related common plant pathogens that are responsible for many diseases affecting a large number of shade trees in Fort Worth. Anthracnose disease spreads easily, and many popular tree varieties are quickly victimized by this fungal infection. These shade tree varieties include but are not limited to maple, elm, oak, dogwood, walnut, and a myriad of others. An arbor care professional is on the lookout for this frequently seen fungal disease that makes its appearance known in early spring when the weather is still cool and conditions are wet. Infected leaves exhibit many negative symptoms such as leaf deformities, dead and shriveled areas, spotting, blotches, and discoloration ranging in color from tans and browns to purple and black shades. Defoliation will occur and the tree will have a thinning appearance. Canker sores on bark and limbs, obvious wounds, and reduced new growth are indicative of anthracnose. A certified arborist should be contacted at the first sign of anthracnose. Although this tree disease rarely causes permanent damage or results in the tree’s death, its visual destruction is highly undesirable and unwelcome in neighborhoods. Anthracnose Treatment Fort Worth.
