Treat Apple Scab in the Early Spring

Tagged under:

Crabapple trees offer some of the first flowers we see in the spring, provide shade throughout the summer, and some varieties even offer brilliant fall color. Unfortunately, many of our crabapple trees are negatively affected by a fungal condition called apple scab.

Did your crabapple tree turn brown and drop its leaves suddenly mid-summer last year? If so, apple scab was likely the cause. The good news is that it can be managed with a foliar spray, or trunk injected fungicide - but these applications need to happen early spring, right as the buds are breaking.

To learn more about how to manage apple scab on your property, or for a quote, please contact your Landscape Care Representative.
