Common Tree & Shrub Diseases
A variety of fungi, bacteria, and pests cause tree and plant diseases in Louisville. Unfortunately, diseases can spread very quickly. In most cases, prompt action is essential for saving your trees and shrubs and preventing further spread. Our team members treat all common tree and plant diseases.
Common tree and shrub diseases in the Louisville area include:
- Anthracnose – This disease is caused by several different fungi and affects shade trees, such as dogwood, elm, maple, ash, oak, sycamore, and other shade trees. The disease is more common during wet and cold weather in the spring.
- Dutch Elm Disease – This devastating elm disease has been experiencing a resurgence lately. The disease is caused by a fungus that is spread by beetles transporting the fungus among elm trees. Trees can die very quickly, so don’t wait to get it treated.
- Emerald Ash Borer – This small, green wood boring beetle spreads quickly among ash trees. The insect is known for causing extensive damage and tree death.
- Powdery Mildew – Several species of fungi can cause this mildew, which ranges in color from white to gray. The disease generally affects ornamentals and fruit trees and is most common in damp and shady areas.
Tree and shrub diseases can spread quickly, devastating your property in a short amount of time. It is important to identify the cause of the problem and apply the right treatment to heal sick and stressed trees and prevent diseases from spreading.
Determining the Right Treatment
The right treatment depends on the disease. Fungicides and bacterial products are often used to treat diseases in trees and shrubs and prevent infestations in healthy trees. These pesticides, fungicides, and bacterial products can be applied through sprays or trunk injection. The trunk injection method is effective for Dutch Elm Disease and the Emerald Ash Borer. We can inject the fungicide or pesticide into the trunk of the tree to protect trees with no current infestation.
Certain bacteria, such as bacterial leaf scorch, are caused by insects spreading diseases from tree to tree. In some cases, the disease can spread quickly, so it is important to treat your trees as soon as you notice a problem. Bacterial sprays may be effective for treating bacterial diseases and restoring stressed trees on your property.
Fungicide sprays are often effective for controlling fungal tree diseases, such as powdery mildew and anthracnose. The treatment varies, depending on the specific tree diseases. Generally, the trees will need to be sprayed at least two or three times to get the fungus under control and restore the health of your trees.
