Is pear rust ever a long term serious problem?  This year pear rust appeared on about half the pears on my Seckel tree and one fourth of the pears on a Kieffer tree.  I had never noticed the disease here before, so I am trying to decide if I should do something to fight it for next year, or just assume it will only be a problem occasionally.  I have a dozen pear trees, two over 100 yrs old, a few 15 yr old trees, and three young trees.
