Do my trees have Borers or Fungus?



Question

I am sending you some photos of my Poplar tree and I believe my Ash Tree? Several of these trees have this bark peeling and I don’t know what it is….Help?!?!? If you can.

Answer
It is hard to tell from pictures but it looks like a combination of problems, to have the bark peeling off like that they could have some bores in the tree eating that inner layer off, that could also be causing the wet bark or the tree to bleed. If that wet area around the wound is foaming or spit like that would be slime flux which is a bacteria and there is no cure for that. Hopefully it is just bores and for that you can use a systemic insect control that I would apply now to protect the tree all next season.
