Shot Leaf and Canker in Cherry Tree


angiehelenaprilformoy@gmail.com added on June 17, 2015 | Answered

I moved into my property a year ago. There was a large cherry tree, about 25 foot tall and a spread of about 20 foot. It has severe leaf shot and also bacterial canker. Is it worth treating or would it be better to cut it down? I cannot reach all of the affected parts to treat.
