Anthracnose

What is it?

Anthracnose is a fungal disease that causes leaf damage in ash, oak, maple and sycamore trees. Leaves curl often turning black or brown.

How do we treat it?

We use a proprietary blend of fungicides to treat the disease. We typically perform this in early spring to protect foliage for the growing season.

What to look for

  • Irregular leaf drop
