Almond bark desease ?
« on: June 13, 2022, 02:33:08 PM »

This has been going on for a few months, right under the bark there are liguid "baloons" forming, full with resin, when i burst them underneath the whole bark layer is dead. I made some severe cuts and removed most of the infected parts and sprayed with fungicide, but its persisting at the same places and i think is slightly expanding.
What could this be and how to treat it ?
Ive had a similar thing, prolly the same desease happen to my cherry a year ago, whatever it is, it seems to be targetting stonefruit species...

Looks like bacterial canker.

It looks like it, after some research ,the chances are not on my tree's side. I'll try to cut off the infected parts completely and use a copper fungicide, web sais it helps sometimes. I just have to wait a little since were in a non stop rain for a week....
Bad news is i see similar sap oozing directly on the graft parts of the varieties i top worked the tree with , a year ago. ..nasty stuff indeed...

That is a real bummer.  :-[ I am always telling people that the difference between good gardeners and bad gardeners is that the good gardeners replanted.
