Our fruiting quince tree has fireblight. We've been trying to control it by pruning, but it's not working. We're going to have to take out the tree. I can't buy quince fruit, so I want a quince tree. How long will we have to wait before we can plant another tree?
(My husband says never, that we lost another tree to fireblight in the past, and it never really goes away. On the other hand, our apple trees don't appear to suffer from it.)
