Treating Anthracnose is generally not necessary, as it is not going to significantly affect the health of the tree. Treatment is only recommended if the tree has lost most or all of its leaves several years in a row due to the Anthracnose fungi.
Bonide Infuse™ Systemic Disease Control is the fungicide that we recommend using for the treatment of Anthracnose. It is available in a ready to spray (attach to the hose) container. See chart below for timing and frequency recommendations.
