Anthracnose is a fungal disease caused by various pathogens such as Colletotrichum or Gloeosporium. It leads to wilting, withering, and tissue death. It primarily affects leaves and twigs.
The most common sign of anthracnose is the spots that appear on new leaves. These spots are irregularly shaped and are tan, brown, or black in color. In some trees, these spots appear all over the leaves and on others they may appear along the leaf veins.
