City trees at risk from Black Knot Disease

The city is concerned about the spread of Black Knot Disease amongst cherry and plum trees around the city this spring. The fungus, named for the black swelling it causes on tree branches is known to spread very quickly, and can kill a tree within a few years if it is not caught. City residents are asked to keep an eye on the trees in their yards. Any contaminated branches found should be pruned about 6 inches back from the growth, and burned or taken to the landfill.
