    Hi Newtimer1,The first thing I would do is to buy a dehumidifier and place it in the garage. If
    it's just a small spot it may be a simple cleanup of the area with bleach/water solution. Here

    With that Cheery tree I would just keep an eye on it and make sure it's still got green under
    the bark from time to time by barely scratching the bark off. If and when you are sure it's not
