Black Knot

Black knot (Apiosporina morbosa) is a fungal disease that causes greenish brown to black swellings in the stems of cherry trees (Prunus spp.). Its spores are released following periods of warm, wet weather and are spread by splashing water, wind, birds, and insects.

Black knot deforms branches and reduces their growth. Heavily infected trees often become stunted and may eventually die from the disease.

 

Black knot continues to be an issue in our community as well as across the City. The City is now focusing their efforts on a specific area of the city each season. The City will be focusing attention on our part of the city in the Spring of 2022. Only City crews are authorized to prune infected trees on public property. If you have black knot on your personal property, you can carefully remove it when trees are in their dormant stage during the winter.  For information on how to safely do that, please refer to:
