I have a fairly large cottonwood tree in my yard that has become infected with sooty canker. I need to know how to eradicate this disease, or at least halt its contamination to my other trees.

cool, dry periods when the wound will seal quickly. Rinsing pruning tools in a 20% bleach solution between cuts will prevent spreading the fungus with tools.
