Mistletoe In Walnut Trees

Question From: a. castillo - CALIFORNIA
Q: we have two walnut trees and they have mistletoe on some of the branches, how do get rid of it? my neighbor also has two trees and they also get mistletoe but in their tree when the walnut drops, it has dark spot, it does not affect the taste of the walnut but it does not look too appetizing. how do you take care of these problems.


I recommend you contact a tree doctor - a certified arborist for an on- site inspection for advice.  Here's a link to a website where you can find one:  http://www.isa-arbor.com/faca/findArborist.aspx . Best  and Happy Yardening, Nancy.
