Black rot canker—crabapple
Hello, I have a twenty year old crabapple that has been confirmed to have black rot canker. Based on the age of the tree and the disease diagnosis, I will be looking to remove the tree this winter to prevent the fungi from spreading. I would like to plant another crabapple in the same area but was wondering how I should treat the soil and the area in general to prevent the new tree from being infected. What measures should I take and how long should I wait before planting a new crabapple. Thank you
Thank you for your response. Would you be able to recommend a nursery that ships online for crabapples.
I'm sorry but we can't recommend specific businesses. You will need to search online and choose one that has stock available.
