Help!! I have an Apple tree that has fire blight and I think black rot. The 17 year ciacadas did a number on the tree in the spring, which has led us here. I’m so nervous it’s going to keep spreading to my other fruit trees who are showing symptoms. According to an arborist, it is salvageable, but I need to cut the diseased branches this winter. I CANT WAIT ANY LONGER THOUGH. I really want to cut them now before they spread more. The tree had early fruits this year as well. So no more growth. Should I go ahead and cut? Even though the rainy season is basically always here but it’s warm?
