It has been a wet spring here in Colorado. The weather has affected us all in different ways. The abundance of moisture is needed, but it will have consequences for our landscapes.
We’ve had an increase in moisture; we saw cooler temperatures and higher humidity levels in Denver. These three factors increase a breeding ground for fungal and bacterial pathogens that will continue to affect your landscape throughout summer.
It’s our job to inform you of the disease, symptoms, and well as damage to lookout for. These diseases often infect tissue in spring, but symptoms do not manifest themselves until mid-summer. Once infections have occurred it is important to clean up diseased leaf and twig tissue to help prevent further infections. Some diseases can be prevented with fungicide/bactericide applications in the spring. Call Autumn Tree, Lawn and Landscape right away if you notice any unuasal symptoms.
