If shoots on your apple and pear trees are turning brown, “hooking” over, and dying, they probably have fire blight disease. This bacterial disease is showing up throughout the state and is very difficult to control. Fire blight can infect apple, pear, hawthorn, mountain ash, serviceberry, flowering quince, rose, as well as raspberry and blackberry trees and bushes.
