Atlanta Tree Service Company, Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts, Discusses Tree Disease, Canker Rot

The Atlanta tree removal experts, Yellow Ribbon, would like to take a moment to talk about the problematic tree disease, canker rot. The tell-tale sign of this condition is the presence of lesions on branches and twigs.

    NORCROSS, GA, June 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta tree removal company, Yellow Ribbon, would like to discuss the dangerous tree condition known as canker rot. There are many types of fungi that can lead to this condition, and it is easily recognized by the lesions it leaves on twigs and branches.

If left untreated, the condition can eventually spread to the trunk. This can ultimately lead to damaged fruit on those trees that produce them. The Atlanta tree service company notes that canker rot begins when pathogens infect the area underneath tree bark called the cambium tissue. The living tissue slowly dies off as the pathogens spread.

The Atlanta tree trimming business wants to remind people that in order to keep their trees from becoming dangerous hazard, addressing canker rot should be a primary concern. According to Gary Robertson, Owner of Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts, "like any disease, canker rot has been known to spread very quickly. It doesn't take long for the condition to render a perfectly healthy tree useless, especially once the trunk has been affected."

Prevention is Key
The Atlanta tree service company states that canker rot is best kept at bay when infected limbs are sacrificed. Cutting off the affected areas is the only way to prevent the disease from spreading to the core. If the trunk has been reached, the chances of a successful recovery are slim. This is how dangerous the condition can be: chemical applications are not effective enough to stop canker rot. Keep your trees in great condition from the start by planting them in healthy soil and fertilizing them regularly.
