Gross white growth on crabapple tree
Thank you very much for your help! I've noticed a second growth popping out on the other side of the trunk and the photo actuallly shows a second bloom that appeared soon after we knocked off the first. So I guess it's time to choose a new tree. Any suggestions for our Newark DE yard are welcome.
