Landscape - Sycamore Anthracnose

Sycamore anthracnose is finally evident on our native sycamores and susceptible London plane trees after last week’s rain. Look for the large brown blotches that follow the veins on the older leaves. No control is needed since the trees put out new leaves and seem to be unaffected by the damage. The following are some pictures.
