  • Fire blight in ornamental pears

    This past winter we cut down a handful of old apple trees in the orchard because they were so diseased from fire blight.

    Two large ‘White House’ ornamental pears and a few crabapples are slated for removal, as well.

    I have noticed additional cases around town, which brings us to the question, what is causing so much die-back in ornamental and orchard tress?

    Every couple of years we see an increased incidence of a disease called fire blight on ornamental and fruit trees including apple, crabapple, serviceberry, pear, plum and cherry.
