Magnolia Bark & Ziziphus Jujuba

summer, depending on tree species. Among those most widely grown in
the temperate areas of the United States include star magnolia
(Magnolia stellata), saucer magnolia (M. x soulangeana) and southern
magnolia (M. grandiflora). A healthy magnolia tree produces the best
flowering display as well as an attractive branching silhouette. Cool,
evenly moist, acidic soils benefit magnolias. Mulches such as pine
straw or bark nuggets also help magnolias grow their best. Mulch

Magnolia trees, a member of the Magnoliaceae family, are renowned for
their beautiful spring blossoms. Several species of fungi and an
insect can attack the trees and produce dead bark, stunt their growth
or even kill them. Proper cultural practices can control these
problems. Canker DiseaseCanker disease, which is caused by several
species of fungi, can result in dead bark on a magnolia tree. A canker
displays as a depressed area on the trunk, stem or branches of the
tree that contains a collection of dead tissue surrounded by a circle
of callused tissue. The dead bark discolors and oozes a fungal resin,
while fruiting bodies of the fungus appear on the branches or leaves

Magnolias are prized in the garden for their large blossoms and
graceful shape. However, mold on the bark creates not only a cosmetic
problem but also a health issue for the tree. Mold on branches
indicates an underlying pest problem that should be addressed, because
these insects damage leaves by sucking up leaf nutrients. Sooty
MoldSooty mold is a fungus that attaches itself to the branches and
leaves of magnolia trees. The mold is able to stick because of the
presence of honeydew, which is a sticky secretion from aphids, scales
and whiteflies. Mold is able to spread from tree to tree by the wind.

Bark damage on a magnolia tree is like a flesh wound on a person. If
it is minor, it won't cause much damage. But if it is severe enough,
it can affect your tree's growth and vigor. It may even kill the tree.
Unfortunately, once the damage has been done, you can do little but
wait to see if it will recover. CausesBark damage can occur on
magnolias at any time. Young trees have thinner bark and are more
likely to be damaged by animals like deer, rabbits, beaver and voles.
Animal damage to trees is more common in the winter months than at
other times. Magnolias also can be damaged by accidents, storms,
lawnmowers or trimmers.
ImportanceIf severe enough, bark damage can
