New tree question

Asked October 16, 2018, 4:38 PM EDT

Hi Kristena, Me again… I have a new question about another tree situation. Do you know anything about the Apple serviceberry? Do you think it could stand up to verticillium wilt? I had never heard of it, but it looks like it would work really well in this other space we have. We are eager to plant more trees around our yard. Thanks so much! Hope you’re enjoying this delicious fall weather. Jennifer

Hello, Jennifer! Unfortunately (and in spite of our wonderful fall weather), any type of serviceberry (Amelanchier) is susceptible to verticillium wilt, so I'd suggest picking a tree that is not.. The list of "is" and "isn't" is here: https://pnwhandbooks.org/plantdisease/pathogen-articles/common/fungi/plants-resistant-susceptible-ve...

Bummer ☹️ Ok... thx!
