These pics are from a sweet bay magnolia. Any idea as to what disease this is?

Hello gjsinop,

Those are apparently phone pictures and they are very small, even for phone pictures. So when you click on them, they don't get much bigger. It would help if your pictures could be bigger, like this "simulation". When you click on the picture-thumbnail, it can grow to a larger size, showing more detail. And you can get a little more detail by hitting your F11 key, if you are viewing this on a computer. That hides your browser's headings, but you can get them back by hitting the F11 key again.

Also, try to show some of the details better, like closeups of the foliage. One suggestion would be to take a foliage sample to your County Agent. I know nothing about Sweet Bay Magnolias, so I can't be any help.

I tip my hat to you.

Do the leaves feel sticky? Does the black appear to be on the surface of the stems? Can it be lightly scratched or rubbed off? Check for scale. They can be on the stems and/or leaves. As Zenman says, pictures that could be enlarged would be helpful to identify the problem.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
