What is Black Knot?
Black Knot, caused by the fungus Apiosporina morbosa, is a very common disease of plants. A survey in Alberta revealed a significant and widespread distribution of Black Knot. This disease reduces the aesthetic value of affected specimens, as infections spread rapidly; high levels may result in the eventual death of the plant.
DISEASED WOOD MUST BE DESTROYED IMMEDIATELY (burned, buried). Diseased knots can produce and release spores for up to 4 months after removal.
The Drumheller Regional Landfill does accept Black Knot material. There is a disposal fee of $62.50/tonne. We recommend calling prior to arrival to ensure the Equipment Operator is on site as the material MUST be buried IMMEDIATELY.
Please call the Drumheller Regional Landfill @ 403-823-1345 for any inquiries.
