Q.Fig Tree Rust

Anonymous added on May 8, 2011 | Answered

Last summer, in late July,  I purchased a small 4′ to 5′ fig tree. I planted and watered regularly. The tree looked healthy. Now this spring there is absolutely no sign of growth and the tree trunk and branches appear to have orange, yellowish spots up and down the trunk. The base of the trunk also appears to have an outer layer of bark coming off. Will any treatment help it at this point? We live in western Washington state, but the nursery where we bought it said this fig tree thrived in the area.
