Sick Maple Tree
Hi, First post here. I have been looking through internet sites for the past three hours and im finding nothing at this point. I have a sick Maple Tree here Its around 28 years old and every single leaf on the tree has little black things on them. Its unbelieveable. I dont know if over the winter this is going to kill my tree.
please help, The tree has a lot of sentimental value to me and mine and its really upsetting me not knowing what these growths are.
Revamp: Non holes, just large black bumps on all the leaves. :!:
Id apreaciate any information or sites that I could visit.
Do the spots look anything like this picture? http://www.extension.umn.edu/project...nosemaple.html
Also, let us know where you are located..
The 2nd link looks exactly like my tree!
Im located in New Baltimore Michigan, near lake saint claire.
Thank you so much! Any more info? Is my tree alright? I asked my neighbor about her's and she said that hers has had it for the last two years.
I'm glad to help - I should have posted the page with the info. on it that had the picture :) Here it is: http://plantclinic.cornell.edu/FactS...t/tarspots.htm
I would take this info. and ask your local extension service or nursery about management strategies for your area but I agree with the brochure in that if your neighborhood has it, it's hard (And may be a waste of $) to control by spray.
Thanks for asking!
