I erred in my posting of yesterday! The conclusion of David Rosenberger concerning my partial tree collapse was not that it was likely Black Rot, but rather White Rot. Both are in the Botryosphaeria genus, but they are distinct species. And for those who may want to read more details, this particular topic occurred in the Apple-crop discussion on and around September 10, and 11, 2015. My apologies to David. In my eagerness to get back out in the orchard to continue fruit-thinning, I did not look back into the past email file to confirm my inaccurate recollection.
