Disease and fungi can be a large problem in landscapes. They can be caused by many sources such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Certain weather conditions can help certain diseases and cause others to be worse. Fortunately, we can control these effectively with a fungicide program that commonly includes 2 sprays per year. Below are some examples of some of the landscape diseases with which we deal.

Tree & Shrub Disease Causes:
Anthracnose is a disease that affects hardwoods and cause the leaves to curl from the tips back.
Phytophthora is a disease that causes symptoms similar to anthracnose.
Scorch causes the leaves to look as though they have been burned from the tips back.
Verticillium Wilt damage can be severe and even cause plant death. Damage is seen mostly in July and August.
Powdery Mildew is a dusty white or gray fungus that will cover the leaves of the infected plant or tree. It will cause the leaves to lose their color and drop early.
