Fireblight on young pear tree
Our original pears succumbed to fireblight several years ago. We cut them out and waited two years before replanting new pears that were advertised as fireblight resistant. One of our new pears, just coming into bearing this year. 4 years after planting, has developed bad fireblight.
A month ago DH cut off every bit he could see and now there is a lot of it again. Is there any hope for our tree or should we just get out the chain saw?
The other tree, the same age but smaller because the deer stunted it's growth after planting is so far free of it.
Any suggestions anyone. We hate to spray but we will to save this tree if there is a spray out there that will kill this disease.
