Q.Service berry tree
Bark on one side of the tree is peeling. Some branches have died & there are
some leaves turning yellow. We’ve heard this may be a type of fungus that affects hardwood trees & the tree should be removed immediately.
Is a service berry a hardwood tree? Are there steps to take to save the tree?
Thank you for your assistance.
This could be Fire Blight, common on Serviceberry.
