magnolia tree disease

Posted by Shelley Vauss , May 13,2005,18:59       Forum

I have a Magnolia tree and it appears to either be dying or diseased. Last year, there were blossoms on all of the branches. This year, the only blossoms came from little branches that started growing on the trunk of the tree, the actual tree branches did not bloom. They did however have "buds" on them. Also, the trunk has a green (fungus?) on it. I live in Maryland and wanted to know if there is anything I can do to save it. I checked the Magnolia tree disease fact sheet and did not find a description of my problem.............thanks
