Anthracnose is an infectious disease that manifests in the late Spring. Ash and
Sycamore trees are most affected, experiencing premature leaf drop and branch
dieback in summer.
- Preventative treatments are necessary to minimize the infection.
- Reducing the cycle of fungus growth and germination will minimize tree damage and
allergens in the air.
- Three applications of a preventative fungicide should be applied 2-3 weeks apart,
begining in early March, to help control this condition throughout the growing season.
