    Been here one year , in this old money pit much to take care....was going to use a smiley face but dont see a "SAD "one well I guess "down" means "sad"
    well anyway...
    Fruit tree has black knot real bad.....I think it is a plum??? I smelled apricot when I smelled one of the limbs.....Former owners dead so cant ask anyone>..
    Was hoping to save the tree... finally realized it had to go mostly,( SO SAD..... ):( too cause it is OR was about 8 feet in front of one of the apples... The branches were into each other too..
    Reluctantely ,( SO SAD,):( I asked , So Hubby cut down yesterday. I am going to burn the smaller stuff..... I need to drag it all away from the apple trees behind it. It has been raining off and on for over a day. I read it can spread easily....
    How far to drag it away till can cut up the larger pieces??? and to store the larger pieces so they can be , cut up and split.. How far from the apple trees??
    I had a beatiful plum good eating one I planted years ago.... In former home.... WE cut it down....reluctantely, there too. I prob did not spray it enough either.....
    WELL what Yall think ??????
    Thanks all

    To be safe, 100' minimum. I'd go further, like 200' minimum.
