Diseases Magnolia's  are subject to  bacterial leaf spots caused by bacterium or a large number of fungi.  Leaf spots can be helped by  chemical controls. Rake up and dispose of infected leaves. 

 Canker diseases will kill branches. Cankers on branches can be pruned out. Keep trees healthy with regular fertilization and by watering in dry weather.  Verticillium wilt may cause death of a few branches or may kill the tree. Prune out dead branches and fertilize with high nitrogen fertilizer.  Insects  

Spider mites like magnolias and Scales of various types will infest twigs. Magnolia scale is the most common scale. Nmc tree care uses proprietary techniques for the treatment of Magnolias that other agencies don't have. Insects  The magnolia scale,  is a large and conspicuous scale insect. Adult females may reach nearly 1/2-inch in diameter when fully grown. Different types of scale may be different colors.

 Plants Attacked the magnolia. Saucer, star, lily and cucumber tree magnolias are the most common trees attacked. Damage Magnolia scales have sucking mouthparts and when heavy infestations completely encrust branches, the branches often die. Badly infested branches and twigs are weakened and growth is retarded. Leaves may also be under-developed. Under a continuous and heavy attack trees may be killed.

 A dark fungus, called black sooty mold grows on the honeydew which results in the leaves becoming blackened.  The honeydew also attracts a ants, bees, wasps and flies which feed on it.  Description and Life Cycle The magnolia scale spends the winter on one to two year old twigs as tiny, dark-colored nymphs. As temperatures warm in the spring, the scales begin to suck sap and have molted once by early May
