Should I remove a new serviceberry tree with rust?
We planted a serviceberry tree in our front yard in the spring of 2017. The tree has suffered from rust both years since it was planted (with all of the fruit and most of the leaves covered in orange goo and then dropping off each summer). My question: Should we remove the tree now (while it is still relatively small and easy to remove) and replace it with a different type of tree? Though the rust makes the tree somewhat less aesthetically pleasing, it isn't necessarily harming its overall health to the point where the tree is going to die. But I am worried that keeping the tree allows the rust to spread back to other nearby cedar trees, thus perpetuating the problem in the neighborhood.
