Crown gall disease on branches of flowering plum tree

I have done some research and found that it is a bacterial disease from the soil. Told to just cut off the branches effected. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happing again or to put on the branches rather than just cutting them off. I appreciate all your information and enjoy your emails. Thanks as always for the help.

Unfortunately, there is not much to be done or that can be done. You can try wettable sulfur in the soil to keep it at bay, but over time it is likely to return if they are not cut off properly.
