|For a class assignment we are supposed to figure out whats wrong with a certain tree. I also am supposed to find out how to save it. I think it might have a disease. But on the few leaves left on the tree they all have little like brown patches. And the branch itself has little gray dots on it. I dont know how else to describe it. But if you could help me out that would be awesome. Thank you for your time.|
It is difficult to diagnose based on that description alone. The leaves may have a fungal or bacterial disease. The bark may have scale or may be normally that way. I suggest you contact your local county Extension Office and see if you can bring in samples or a photo for them to look over and assist you. That would be your best bet of getting a good diagnosis.
According to our info your Extension Office's address and phone number are:
600 S 7th Street Suite 4
Opelika, AL 36801-4936
Phone: (334) 749-3353
Thanks and good luck!
