Fire Blight Disease is caused by?

McKinney residents are blessed with beautiful ornamental pear tree trees. There are many flowering options, including the Redspire pear, Trinity, Autumn Blaze and Aristocrat pears. Pear trees can suffer from visible fire blight, which can have a devastating effect on their appearance. It’s important to work with an arborist and plant pathologist.

Fire blight is caused when bacteria is easily spread through rain and insects. The bacteria lives in the cankers and other damaged areas of the tree’s trunk and branches during winter. The fire blight bacteria produces milky secretion in damaged areas of trees, which attracts insects. It then begins to infect new twig growth as well as the tree’s leaves. Infected twigs will curl and turn into hooked ends, eventually becoming blackened. Leaves turn brownish-black spots on the leaves, eventually becoming shrivelled. The branches eventually succumb to the disease by developing dark, deep sores.
