I live in a previous flood zone area and for 5 years after the last flood we had that everywhere!
The type we had here was spread by a fungus and it hit everything here in the same way it is doing there. It is spread by wind,rain and fog. Hence
the appearance of "drop" like holes. It has no preference it hit everything over and over!
They need to look into using a fungal treatment and see if it gets rid of it. It did here but getting everyone to do it was an uphill battle due to
the expense.( why it took so long to get rid of it all actually)
This past year we got another out break of it and lost almost all of our outdoor plants and our entire winter garden. The trees took such a terrible
hit that they have dead spots all over them.
We are now going to have to trim off about 30%+ of the tree on each one. Our willow is going to look like a bonsai tree by the time we get all the
dead zones off!
We are putting the green houses back up and taking out the soil that was there last year and yet again replacing it ALL. It is costly; but to have
fresh veggies etc we can afford for our kids is well worth it. By far cheaper than buying them at the store still.
