It's a May Day tree. Prunus Padus. And it has Black Knot disease. Can't be saved. Can't be helped.* I can enjoy it for a few more years and then it will be dead...and we can pull it down then. Cost to remove: $326.00 Stump Grinding: $125.


*My internet research bears this out. The amount of pruning it would require would likely kill it and even then you haven't "got" it all--infected branches can spread the disease up to 2 years before it's even visible. The tree is suseptible to it and it is better avoided than treated.
