Plum Trees

plum tree disease

Anonymous added on July 23, 2015 | Answered

In the past few months, I have seen big thick black tar like pieces forming on the branches of my plum trees. It is killing the branches. It looks like a growth and it is spreading all over the branches from tree to tree. It is uneven and bumpy in texture. What can I do?
