Fireblight Treatment for Ornamental Pear Trees. Fireblight is a highly contagious tree disease frequently seen in Fort Worth and the surrounding cities. Caused by the bacterium erwinia amylovora, this disease attacks pome fruit (fruits with a hard pit center) trees such as the beautiful ornamental pears that grace north Texas. Since this destructive disease manifests and spreads quickly, it is of extreme importance to entrust the care of your ornamental pear trees to an arbor care professional. The dangerous bacteria persist through the winter and first makes its presence visible during mid-February when the trees begin to blossom and daytime temperatures rise above sixty degrees. Flowering is short-lived, lasting only three to four weeks and during this time the trees are more susceptible to infection. Fire blight spreads rapidly during spring due to moisture, splashing rain and insects such as honey bees traveling from flower to flower. This serious disease is irreversible and often fatal. In its advanced stages, fireblight not only kills branches and entire trees in Fort Worth but can also destroy shrubs. A certified arborist recognizes this disease immediately due to the sudden and severe symptoms.
