I have several pyracantha (fire bush) shrubs near the front of my house that have always been beautifully full of blossoms in the spring and berries in the fall/winter. This year the leaves are dropping faster than I've ever seen and the berries seem to be shrinking and drying on the bush. This has never happened before. I don't know if it's a pest or fungus problem so I don't know how to treat  it. I surely would hate to have to cut them all down.  Any ideas out there?

You can pose your question to the Agricultural Extension service here:

Be prepared to describe what you see on the leaves and berries, things such as discoloration, white coating, holes, gnawing etc.

Hot summer, I read the Fall will not be that pretty this year either because of the heater factor this summer.

What I was thinking. Prune any damaged 'tips' down to where appears to be healthy wood. CLEAN pruners before using on anything else.
