Kabatinia thujae

symptoms develop on one-year-old growth in early spring. At this time normal foliage loses it winter coloration and turns green.

 

 

 

 

Foliage on infected branches turns yellowish brown. The discoloration extends from the tip back about five inches. Sunken gray areas are present at the base of the discolored area. Numerous acervuli are produced in these areas. Tree damage is similar but much less severe with Kabatina tip blight than with Phomopsis tip blight. The overall appearance of the tree improves when dead branch tips drop and new growth develops.

If you see any abnormal in your garden, contact immediately a specialist, before it is too late!
