Tree Cankers

What are tree cankers and why they damage trees

Do you have a tree with a depressed area? Maybe there’s an area on your tree that looks like a bulls eye. Or there may be a section of wood on your tree that has black pin pricks all over it. These can all be signs of cankers.

  1. Cankers are caused by fungus or bacteria.
  2. Stressed trees are more susceptible to cankers.
  3. Cankers can cause wood decay called canker rots.
  4. Plant native trees that are well adapted to their environment to help keep them from getting cankers.
  5. Proper watering and maintenance helps keep trees from getting stressed and getting cankers.
