I have a mango tree covered in fungus should I trim the tree

Answer: Hi, thank you for your enquiry. It would have been ideal to treat your tree with a fungicide prior to infection, but as that is too late now, I would suggest removing and disposing of all the affected growth (bin it – don’t put it in your compost or green waste disposal bin).

Next year, you may want to consider spraying your tree with Yates Liquid Copper Fungicide, when the buds begin to form and develop into flowers. Spraying every 4 weeks and ensuring thorough coverage will help keep the fungus away.

Hope that helps with your inquiry.
