Using Prevention Methods to Fight Tree Diseases
Since late winter is a good time to plant bareroot trees, the Oregon State University Extension Service is recommending implementing a preventative strategy now to hold off pest problems and fruit tree disease. It is important to be vigilant about removing dropped fruit and leaves that might be harboring pests, as well as spraying cracks and crevices to extricate pesky insects, fungi, and bacteria.
