Help with diagnosis

I'm wondering if you can tell me what this is. It looks to be some type of gall perhaps but I've never seen one with such bright orange color. It's very hard, not spongy at all, and about 2 inches in diameter but eventually grows quite large. They don't grow in clusters but individually on branches. Tree is loaded with them.

I have an apple tree that seems to be dying but I don't know from what. Last...

I have an apple tree that seems to be dying but I don't know from what. Last year it was fine and produced many apples. This is only our second year owning the property so I don't know what kind of apple tree it is. We have had a lot of rain but we have good drainage here and the ground hasn't been spongy or anything. I have attached a picture and have 2 more but I think I can only add 1. I know there are a lot of suckers on the bottom of the tree. Could that have anything to do with it? Thanks for your help!!

Plum tree problem

I was emailed these pictures of a person's plum trees. The plums are turning black and drying up like prunes. It's happening on two trees located next to each other. Can you tell me what might be causing this? Also there on insects on the leaves of the trees. I don't know if the two are related or if they are two separate issues. Is there a spray that is recommended?

Tobacco mosaic virus

How widespread and serious is tobacco mosaic virus in Minnesota / OR is it minor or limited in scope across the state due to climate or geography ? I hope to plant some ornamental tobaccos because I feel I have the absolute perfect location and purpose. However, am I inviting trouble by bringing any variety of tobacco to my land ? The planting would be from a guaranteed seed source and located 300ft from any vegetable garden or fruit trees.

Pine tree problem

Can you tell me what is happening to these pine trees? A person sent in these pictures. Said it's happening to all the pine trees in this area, some very small and some very large trees. It's a large grove of pine trees.
