Fire Blight Disease
Flower Mound residents enjoy beautiful ornamental pear plants in their gardens and landscapes. There are many varieties of pear flowers, such as the Redspire and Trinity, Autumn Blaze, Aristocrat Capital, Chanticleer, Redspire, Trinity, Autumn Blaze or Autumn Blaze. An experienced arbor care professional and plant pathologist can make a huge difference in the appearance of fire blight on pear tree trees.
Fire blight can be caused by bacteria that is easily spread via rain and insects. The bacteria is able to survive the winter months because it lives in cankers on tree trunks and branches. Fire blight bacteria creates milky secretion early in spring from the tree damaged areas. This attracts insects, and then the bacteria spreads to young, new twigs, and eventually the tree’s leaf leaves. Infected branches begin to curl, wilt and eventually turn into black, hooked ends. The affected leaves eventually become unattractive with brown and black spots. Finally, the diseased branches die from dark, deep sores.
