Plum Pests
« on: November 05, 2019, 01:19:13 PM »
I bought this Late Santa Rosa plum earlier this year and it has always been fairly sickly. I put some manure on it a few months ago and it finally burst out decent looking growth, and I stripped off almost all the sickly leaves. There seems to be some kind of pest on it, and I wonder if I should quarantine it or even take it off my property? I don’t want this to spread

Can you share Pictures of leafes? Plums are exposed to a variety of diseases and pests. The most common plum tree diseases include black knot, plum pocket, brown red, plum pox virus, perennial canker, bacterial leaf spot, bacterial gum disease and also mites.

There is a good photo in the first post of the leaves. No ID on it?

Seems it's risky to keep plums around...
