Bacterial Leaf Scorch (BLS) most often plagues Oaks (Pin Oak pictured), Sycamores, Red Maples and Dogwoods. The BLS bacteria shut down a tree’s systems preventing water and nutrients from reaching leaves. Without treatment the tree will die.
There is no cure for Bacterial Leaf Scorch. However, antibiotic injections suppresses the disease and prolong the life of the tree.
