Identifying Tree Disease & Other Plant Health Issues
Depending on the season, and the types of plants and trees in your St. Louis yard, you may face several diseases, fungi and pests. When plants are sick or not performing as expected, it is noticeable. Here are some of the warning signs of tree disease or pest attacks you should look for with your plants:
- Yellow/chlorotic leaves
- Leaf or needle drop.
- Any signs of a dying tree such as branch or twig dieback.
- Visible pests on the plant – whether bagworms, flying beetles or caterpillars.
- Browning of leaves or needles.
- Small, pale yellow spots that turn bright orange.
- Black dots covering leaves.

Diseases Affect Trees & Plants in Douglas County
Besides living pests, your trees and plants may be negatively impacted by various plant and tree diseases. Leaf spot caused by fungi or bacteria, rust disease and apple scab are just a few of the diseases that can affect your trees and shrubs in the Midwest. Fungal diseases can also spread to and damage your fruit trees. We can treat your infected trees and bring them back to life with a research-based, properly applied treatment plan.
Effective Iron Chlorosis Treatment
If you see the leaves in your trees turning yellow leaving a network of dark green veins, your trees may be suffering from an iron deficiency. As the leaf cells begin to die, the edges of the leaf will appear burnt or scorched, turning a brown color and fraying. Iron chlorosis affects many Midwest trees, but your RYAN Pros can save the tree with an injection of iron directly into the tree trunk.
