Fight Fire Blight


Fire Blight is prevalent this year, with arborists reporting occurrences up and down the Front Range. Fire blight is caused by a bacterium that attacks fruit trees and ornamental shrubs, killing leaves and fruit, leaving cankers, and giving the tree a burnt look. If not managed properly, fire blight will continue to spread throughout the tree, eventually killing it.

Think your trees may be at risk? Reach out to an arborist to recommend treatment and pruning regimens to maintain the health of your tree.
