Join Dr. James Downer Horticulture and Plant Pathology Advisor as he discusses the health of shade trees. Trees catch, harbor and infect each other with diseases that are contagious, cause symptoms, shorten their lifespans and predispose them to failure. Accurate diagnosis of tree diseases and an understanding of the physiology of disease development aids in developing treatment protocols that include adjusting arboricultural practices to maintain diseased trees.
