Blister Moth?.. Pear tree.

djoyofficial(5-6)June 11, 2014

I have inherited what I believe to be a small pear tree that was left for dead for many years. I hope to save it but need to figure out what these little miners are. They aren't on a ton of the leaves and they don't look like any blister moth pictures I have found online..

Does anyone know?

I hope someone can help. Thanks,
dj

my first question.. is what kind of pear tree ... if its a grafted fruit tree.. and the growth is from below ground ... or below the graft ... then there is no use to SAVE it ...

and if its one of the hated ornamental pears trees... there is a double reason not to save it ...

now.. to your question... i dont know what it is [totally blanking.. lol.. so proud.. lol] ... but superficial leaf damage is not something i would ever spray for ... and all such bumps on leaves are such.. in my world ...

one thing for sure.. and i would bet my shiny penny on it .... it is not a moth.. and i wonder how you leapt to such ...

BTW.. now that i look back at your pix.. i am wondering if its even a pear??? ... see link

lets decide or find out.. what plant we have.. before we start spraying chemicals around.. especially if its only the cosmetic damage i allude to .. and if these gurus cant ID it.. try the name that plant forum ....

good luck

Eriophyid mites?
If so, the "growths" aren't damaging to the tree.

Looks like a hackberry and those would be hackberry galls made by a psyllid.
