How do we control fire blight?

In order to control fire blight, our team will apply antibiotic treatments to your infected tree. Our antibiotic fire blight control treatments are designed to attack the bacteria that cause fire blight as well as protect healthy parts of the tree from becoming infected.

We can also prevent fire blight from spreading throughout your tree by pruning the tree as needed. It is key to prune diseased twigs and branches in the late winter because that is when the fire blight bacteria are dormant. If your tree has cankers caused by fire blight, we will remove them by cutting through healthy wood below the infected bark of each canker. By applying antibiotic treatments and pruning appropriately, we can help protect your tree from fire blight before the disease has the chance to spread out of control.

When should you contact us about your tree's fire blight?

If your tree is showing signs of fire blight, it is crucial that you contact us as soon as possible. The earlier you contact us, the better chances we have to be able to save your tree. It can take fire blight as little as a few months to kill an infected tree, especially if the tree is young. Even if fire blight doesn't kill your tree, it can still cause serious damage that progressively worsens the longer you leave the tree untreated. By calling us right when you notice the symptoms of fire blight, you can increase the probability that we will be able to successfully save your tree.

We can nurse your tree back to health with fertilization.

If your tree has suffered from fire blight before, it is most likely quite weak as a result of the damage done by the disease. The best way to strengthen your tree is by replenishing its vital nutrients through fertilization. At A+ Lawn & Landscape, we offer a tree care program that includes multiple fertilization treatments throughout the year; these treatments will help to help your tree recover from any damage caused by fire blight. Keeping your tree strong and healthy also improves its resistance to future infections.
