Tree Diseases: Phomopsis

Phomopsis may be seen on junipers and arborvitie. Visually you will note random blighting of twigs which may sometimes be misdiagnosed as needle shed.

Phomopsis will effect new growth throughout the summer months, though may not be readily noticiable until the tale end of summer/early fall. As the disease cycles through, the blighted twigs will eventually take on a grayish appearance and have small black spore growth.
