Filbert Tree
Q.

Can I save my Majestic Red Contorted Filbert from blight once it has hit it?

Zone 60423 | Anonymous added on July 11, 2019 | Answered

I planted my contorted filbert about 10 years ago in the front of my house. It is the anchor of my landscaped front yard. I have tried spraying it and cutting back some of the limbs last year. When I found out this year that it had blight I was told that I was fighting a losing battle. Should I remove the entire tree? If I have to remove it, can I replant contorted filbert there again? Losing this tree has made me sick to my stomach. I love it so much.
