Southwestern Manitoba And Westman Area Fungicide Application
A common problem that trees can have is tree fungus. There are many forms of fungi that can infect your tree and sometimes cause severe or even fatal effects. Of course, not all fungi have a negative effect, and some are even beneficial. This is why we are here to answer these types of questions and determine the true cause of why your trees and shrubs are not thriving as they should be.
If you discover a strange discoloration or fungus growing on your tree before you go out and buy a fungicide to eliminate it, let us take a look at it first to see if it is neutral or beneficial. Even if your tree is showing signs of health problems, do not assume it is the fault of the fungus on your tree. For all we know, it could actually be a beneficial fungus trying to help your tree heal from a different issue.
An arborist is a professional tree expert that can diagnose the type of fungus and appropriate treatment if necessary. In some cases, you will see mushrooms or a fungus growing on your tree, but in many cases, it may be underground or not appear how you would expect it to. The visible effects really depend on the type of fungus that is infecting your tree. In many cases the tree may not appear as robust as it normally is, the leaves may wilt and/or change colour.
The main threat with these fungal infections is the structural integrity of the tree can literally break down and make the tree fall apart if left untreated. This can become particularly dangerous for larger trees if tree parts start falling on people. If the fungal infection is too far advanced, we may even recommend removing the tree entirely and replacing it with a type of tree resistant to the fungus, or if it was preventable, the same tree again and education in how to avoid it from happening again in the future.
Once infected with fungi, a tree or shrub can never really be cured, but it can be treated to prevent it from escalating and getting worse. It will go into "remission," where the tree can return to its regular health and vigor. Prevention is key when it comes to fungal infections of your trees, however, it is likely to be too late if you are here on this page, unfortunately.
That being said, we are more than happy to come out and administer the appropriate treatments, and more importantly, help you discover the cause of the problem so you may prevent it from happening again in the future. We are so much more than just a reactionary service provider, as we also provide extensive plant health care consultation services as well, and we love to educate about all things tree and shrubbery related
