Actually, we’re not talking about an insect! Right now, many Dogwood trees are being affected by a fungal disease known as Dogwood Anthracnose. Dogwood Anthracnose affects all urban Dogwood trees each spring, and this disease is known to cause dieback and even possible death should the disease continue and spread throughout the rest of the tree.
Keeping Dogwood Trees Healthy
What are some ways that we can help you keep your Dogwood trees healthy? Spraying fungal control applications and getting your trees on one of our Programs, is a good start toward combating Anthracnose. Our biggest recommendation is keeping the tree healthy. Trees in the urban environment– everywhere we live– are under stress. When a tree is stressed, it is more susceptible to infestations and diseases. Dogwood Anthracnose is no different; eventually, this disease will stress the tree to the point where it can no longer survive.
Don’t let it get to that point! Give our office a call today at 864-244-3088 and schedule an appointment with one of our certified arborists. Our professional tree service team is qualified to help evaluate and prescribe appropriate treatment for both your trees and shrubs.
