Two of the most common health issues in the Atlanta and Marietta area are Amillaria Root Rot, Anthropogenic and/or Leaf Spot Diseases. These two diseases are common on the East coast. Amillaria Root Rot is a fungus that attacks both softwood and hardwood trees and shrubs. Amillaria Root Rot attacks trees that are weak from competition, pests or climatic factors. It can also attack healthy trees and kill them or make them more susceptible to other insects or fungi.
If your hardwood trees are showing signs of dead areas or blotches on the leaves, they may be infected with Anthroacnose or Leaf Spot Disease. These kind of diseases are very common on the East coast and in the Atlanta area. American sycamore, white oak, black walnut and dogwoods are particularly prone to these diseases. Not only will these diseases kill your trees and shrubs, but a loss of shade trees can have a negative impact on your property values.
