Observations in the Field:

Why Are My Spruce Trees Browning?

October 26, 2018 – What a “funky” fall. Colorado Springs broke heat records in September that were previously set in 1895 followed by a record low of 15 degrees on October 15. Calls have been flowing into our office about browning in spruce trees. It is a normal phenomenon for conifers to shed older needles at this time of year preceded by a sudden color change. Spruce with their shallow roots and love of cool sites undoubtedly have been impacted by our extended drought and heat.

Things you can do:

    • Provide consistent year-round water to your trees to keep roots from dying
    • Water down evergreen foliage periodically to keep cool and clean off insects
    • Consult with your Arborist at SavATree for recommendations on treatments and practices that can help your trees

Fire Blight

June 9, 2018 – Fire blight has appeared in abundance in the last week, especially on Apple Trees and Bechtel Crab apples. Trees appear to be suddenly wilting and dying. Blossoms were glorious this year and spring temperatures were warmer than average, favoring the disease. The bacterium is easily spread by pollinating insects during the blossom period and also by rain and improper pruning. Many areas of Colorado Springs have been hit by damaging hail in recent weeks. This can increase the spread of the bacterium by creating wounds on the branches.
