    Leaf rust problem

    One of my one-year-old hybrid poplars recently became covered with what appeared to be leaf rust. It engulfed the entire tree and was really unsightly, and we had to remove it. It was in a copse with two other one-year-old hybrid poplars and a twelve-foot river birch. The other two hybrid poplars show traces of what looks like it might also be leaf rust, just starting to show on the lowest leaves.

    Is there anything to do to protect these two poplars from being overriden with leaf rust?

    And, can it affect the river birch?

    I got the hybrid poplars from Arbor Day last spring and was really excited with their growth - unfortunately it was the tallest that was downed, it was already over my head.

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    RE: Leaf rust problem

    Probably leaf rust.

    There's a comment in the "General Discussion" section of this formum under the "Natve/Non-Native" topic regarding leaf rust being really bad on the hybrid poplars this year.

    If you haven't already, check out www.hybridpoplars.com. There is a wealth of information on this guy's site, including links to other sites. He also sells several rust-resistant clones.

    I've never ordered from him, but he gets extremely high ratings on the garden websites that I frequent and I do plan on ordering a few things from him this spring.
