new peach tree with possible disease #167868

Asked February 24, 2014, 9:34 AM EST

Hi, I recently bought a red baron peach tree bare root, I was getting ready to plant and noticed this black mark with a "wound" looking spot on the trunk where it is seen, what is it... should I be worried about fir blight or is this treatable (do I scrap the tree and notify seller for fearof contaminating my other plants or plant and treat? Thanks!

Definitely contact the seller. I cannot tell what the problem is. Do not scrap. Scrapping will do more harmĀ
