I have recently acquired a home with a 2 acre property and home to 6 different apple trees and two pear trees. Unfortunately, they were very neglected and overgrown all the way down to the ground and covered in a kind of black fungus looking thing on their bark. We still got alot of fruit from them in the spring and it was very yummy....some of the apples had alot of spots on them like they didn't get enough sun on them or something.
We have since trimmed them right back and gotten the branches off the ground now....just wondering if there is anything more we can do to improve the "fungus" looking growth on these trees?? Please advise me as I am a "newbie" to this whole thing
Thanks in advance for any advice!.
Your best bet would be to take a sample of the black fungus to a local garden center and have them take a look at it. They will be able to tell you what to do and any spraying needed. Fruit trees need maintainance and regular spraying yearly.
