We Get To The Root Of Tree Healthcare Problems

Fire blight mainly enters through twigs and the tips of tree branches. After that, the bacteria will travel to stems or trunks. It attacks the soft new growth first, causing the complete plant die-back to the roots. Once the bacteria attack any host plants, you will notice a burnt appearance on twigs and affected branches. This infection can also lead to the invasion of the entire root system, causing root rot disease.

Fire blight disease is tricky to control, especially when you reside in warm moist weather as the bacteria oozes out of the cankers speedily under such conditions. So, professional fire blight treatment solutions are crucial to retaining infected tree health and vigor.

About Fire Blights

Fire blight is a destructive plant disease caused by the bacterium Erwinia Amylovora. It affects trees and shrubs in orchards, nurseries, and landscape plantings across the USA.

The infection usually spreads through splashing water, rainwater, infected plants, insects, bords, and uncleaned gardening tools. However, the spread is intercellular up to 4 feet of vascular tissues, thereby causing vascular wilt. It blocks the water-carrying system, causing the leaves, stems, and branches to wither and weak. Seasonal weather conditions influence the spread of this bacteria.

In winter, this bacterium survives in cankers on the trunk and branches. After that, their growth multiplies at a rapid rate on the surface of leaves, twigs, flowers, and immature fruit for a few weeks without causing symptoms. The sweetness of this bacterium attracts many insects like Caterpillars and Moths, helping the bacterium to reach woods and flowers.
