Now is the time to treat against pine and crabapple fungicides.
Pines need protection against blight diseases that causes loss of vigor and potential death in severe cases. A preventative fungicide spaced 10-21 days apart during Mid April- Early May can help to offset the damage that this disease causes.
Crabapples need protection against rust and scab diseases that cause leaf defoliation in late summer. Not typically fatal; these diseases can cause the tree to stress and lose vigor, not to mention the appearance that a defoliated tree presents.
Please feel free to call me if you’re worried about your Crabapples, or Pines. I’d be happy to take a look or provide you with treatment recommendations.
