Fire Blight Treatment

​Ross Tree is an expert in Fire Blight treatment. Fire Blight is a bacterial disease that affects Apple, Pear, Quince, and Crabapple trees, causing dead branches, water-soaked blossoms, blackened leaves, discolored bark, black twigs, and dried fruits. The Blight spreads by insects, splashing rain, or contaminated pruning tools. For the past several years, Fire Blight Ross was spreading like wildfire across Denver. However, this year’s hard freeze in April slowed it down in 2020. Ross Tree uses a mix of pruning, trunk injections, and chemical sprays to treat this disease. The best time to prune Fire Blight affected trees is mid-winter. For more information about Fire Blight, check out Ross Tree’s Fire Blight Handbook.
