Dwarf pyramidal norway spruce disease

Asked April 14, 2016, 11:08 AM EDT

I planted this tree last year, is there anything I should treat it with in terms of fungus protection? It appears healthy now, but my neighbor recently had to remove his due to a fungus. I really don't want to lose this tree! Thank you.

Hi,

I am including a link to some good information about spruce: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/plantclinic/downloads/Plant%20Clinic%20Report%20Spruce.pdf

As your tree is healthy now, you might want to read about suggested measures for prevention before you apply a fungicide. If you do want to apply a fungicide, make sure to read the label carefully to ensure that it will cover the wide variety of fungi that can attack spruce and follow the directions.
