Increased airflow can delay the onset of early and late blight, two common fungal diseases of tomatoes, but increased sunlight means sunscald
could be more problematic.
Damage to a tree--such as wounds in a tree's outer bark from fire, sunscald
, tunneling bark beetles, gnawing rodents or broken branches--are an inevitable part of its lifecycle.
is especially troublesome on evergreens planted on the south side of a building.
Key words: bark colour, white birch, cambium temperatures, trembling aspen, sunscald
, boreal forest, deciduous trees
is the sun burning the tomato skin.
Overpruning large trees can be extremely damaging, resulting in sunscald
, decay, excessive sprouting, excess loss of the photosynthetic area, root decline, and even death.
In climates where searing sun regularly beats down on exposed, developing tomatoes, sunscald
poses a definite concern.
A: Trees do not need to be shaded in this way (yarn bombing) to prevent sunscald
Antitranspirant (also antidesiccant) A liquid sprayed on plants to reduce water loss, transplant shock, windburn, and sunscald
Heading large-diameter branches often causes decay and cracks in the cut branch stubs and trunk, depletes energy reserves, causes sunscald
on the trunk and branches, weakens roots, destroys the tree architecture and structure, causes vigorous sprouting, attracts boring insects, and wastes energy, because the removed branches have to be disposed of.
