My husband bought an Apricot tree online. It began to ooze red resin from every branch and tree, so we dug it up and threw it away in the bin.
We hoped that an established Almond tree next to it would not be affected. But I see this year it does have a couple of small red oozing patches from a couple of side branches. Is there any way we can save this tree. Do I need to cut off the branches or buy a cure. There is tree bark at the base in this area Should we have cleared this away, might it have. spread the disease.The almond tree has been there 5 years, and is very prolific.
Thanks for reading. Janet
