Bradford Pear w/black tips

I have a smalll Bradford Pear tree that the tip of the leaves are turning black. Part of the tree did it last yr., but I don't remember it doing it until later in the summer. The leaves are all pretty yellow. Does it have a disease or does it have missing nutrients?

Black tips on Bradford Pears.

Hello dandb.

I'll include this link for you to read.

My best advice is to cut off some affected parts & get them to the County Agent ASAP.

Let's hope this is not Fire Blight, the FB has become imune to the antibiotic's used in our county.

Thumbs down

Bradford Pear- more problems than it's worth. Cut it down and paint the cut with a herbacide to prevent regrowth. Then- plant a nice specimen tree suited to your needs and climate.
