Fire Blight is a new bacteria killing off trees that have berries and fruit. It causes the leaves to wilt and almost look like they were in a fire. The most common trees affected in our area are Service Berry, Hawthorn, Pear, Apple and Crab Apple, Rose and Spirea. All branches should be pruned off 1 foot below the infected area as soon as possible. The branches should be disposed of by a professional and the shears should be cleaned with bleach.
