Fireblight is a potentially fatal disease of ornamental trees, especially apple, crabapple, and hawthorne. This bacterial disease leaves the appearance that the foliage was scorched.

If left unchecked it will likely kill the host tree, so immediate action is suggested. Pruning out infected portions, and sometimes systemic injections, may be recommended. Tree health should also be maintained, but do not overfertilize.
