Hi Folks

This spring the weather in the upper midwest has been ideal for leaf
attacking fungi including anthracnos, tar spot, and apple scab. I
anticipate anthracnos will prevent leafout of am. sycamore until
mid-July and will cause significant damage to white oak and several
species of ash. Tar spot will effect maples and apple scab will be
significant on nonresistant crab apples. Next years leaf problems is
dependent on weather but is also influenced by how well we collect and
dispose of infected leaves and twigs this fall. In short, dont mow
infected leaves, rake them up and send them to your local composting
