Black Knot

Black Knot

Black knot is fungus that affects members of the cherry family (Prunus) and creates strange looking distortions in the branches, pictured here. Management of black knot is possible in trees that are not heavily infested. Trees showing symptoms throughout large parts of the canopy however, are best removed.
