I've lost one tree to this disease whatever it may be.
And I have another that is in the process of dying. It seems to die from the end of the branches inward one branch at a time.
It seems to be attacking the bark or that layer between the bark and the tree not really sure. The bark splits and looks like it's eating away.
I should note that I had a Japanese plum we're also called a loquat tree in this spot that died a few years ago from what look like to be the same shit. Up to this point I've tried everything I could think of as far as sprays and now I'm just letting it go to see if this one happens to survive. It does manage to produce a new growth in spots. Any input?
