Problem with Weeping Cherry Tree
[Return to Topics]

Had a call this morning from a friend with a weeping cherry tree disease. He says his tree is 11 years old, and normally blooms a dark pink, but this year it was a real light pink. Just recently his leaves started turning black and falling off. It was a grafted tree, and he says where it was grafted is starting to crack. Could this be a fungal disease? and if so, has anyone had experience with this? thanks!

Black knot maybe. If it's black knot you have to cut out the bad sections. They don't have a spray for it.

This happened to my plum tree this year - just a young tree - last year was its first time to bear.

The leaves all turned black and fell off.

I had a nearby apple tree develop some fire blight last year, but I trimmed the affected branches and burned them as I read I should do, and disinfected the trimming tools.

I don't think the fire blight spreads to cherry or plum trees?

The whole tree appears to be dead now. I really hate that as it was coming along as a nice little tree.
