How to prevent diseases in fruit Trees ?

If you take care of any fruit trees, such as plums, peaches, or cherries, I am sure you know that such trees are more vulnerable to diseases than any other. Although the fruits are delicious, it is very difficult to live with all the ailments that affect the lives of everyone who grew one of those fruit trees.

The most common illness you hear about is known as the “Brown Rot”. It is a fungus that can be added to many leftovers after the harvesting season. Not only does it look disgusting to leftover fruit, but it also makes it unattractive to fresh fruit (unless you enjoy eating fungi). To prevent this disease, you should prune trees frequently to promote good ventilation. The main cause of brown rot is increased moisture content. When you finish your selection for the season, you should avoid all the fruit left on the tree or the ground.

Cytospora cancer is a dark and mild area in tree trunks. The gum lasts through the bark with a large callus. The pathogen that causes these cancers usually enters the tree through old wounds. If you prune out all the sprouts that occur at the end of the summer, it will be difficult for cancers to know themselves inside your tree. When you are pruning, allow the wound to heal naturally rather than using the cutest clothing you can buy from gardening stores. I have found that they usually do little to help with any situation and only make the tree look unnatural.

Planters of plum trees will engage in what is known as the Black Note. The symptoms of blackness are not rough tumors or growths that can be seen on tree branches. If you see any of these, you should immediately cut the branch attached to it. If you normally use branches for mulch, do not use it.

Almost everyone who has ever maintained a cherry tree has dealt with the “cherry leaf spot.” It usually shows itself when the old dead leaves have fallen to the ground. Prevention of this disease is very easy. All you need to do is collect all the leaves that fall from your tree. If you have already seen the symptoms of the disease, you should destroy all your leaves. If not, you can use them as garbage.

When your fruits are ripe and ready to be transplanted, you should always complete them within 2 weeks. It is best to go out and pick up fresh ripe fruit every day, including those that have fallen off the tree or are starting to rot. By doing this, you will prevent too much dependence on your tree for feeding bees and lizards.

Fruit tree growers are constantly confronted with diseases and pests to worry about. However, you can avoid most of them if you take the right precautions. You should look for any diseases that affect your area, and try to prevent them.
