Cedar Apple Rust on my Juniperus Virginiana

GardenGuyZone6a(6a)April 20, 2012

Hey again.

I have a Juniperus Virginiana (see previous thread in Tree Forum: Can anyone ID this tree? (photos included)), I found what I think is called Cedar Apple Rust (Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae) on one branch only.

I do not see it anywhere else.

After doing a little research, I found it will look like this soon:

Needless to say, this is alarming to a novice. I've never seen it before.

Should I be freaking out and spraying my tree with a fungicide?

Anyone have experience with this before?
