Finally, the most dangerous cause of leaf scorch in residential trees is tree disease. Tree disease, specifically bacterial leaf scorch, differs from environmental leaf scorch in several ways, and can be extremely harmful to valuable trees. For example, environmental leaf scorch can occur at any time, usually right after after a major weather event or other physical issue. Bacterial leaf scorch generally appears at specific times of the year. In addition, environmental leaf scorch can be a one-time occurrence, but bacterial leaf scorch may return annually and brown more leaves each time it returns. Bacterial leaf scorch is far more likely to completely decimate a tree’s health, and is far more likely to result in tree removal.
