Hi there I have three Swedish Columnar Aspens in my front yard. I noticed on one of them that there seems to be a crack and moister running out of it. Has anybody seen this before? Should I do anything about it? Thanks

Good chance its the onset of canker. Populus genus is extremely susceptible.

with snow load potential.. that crotch.. with included bark.. is going to be a big problem

will it fall on anything if it fails????


RE: Swedish Columnar Aspen

Spoke, Whaas is correct in saying that this genus is very susceptible to a number of fungal canker diseases. And no, there is nothing to be done about it.
