I have 3 lovely cherry trees in my from yard-they are dropping all their leaves now and spotted/hole filled leaves. Is there any treatment? I'm worried I'm losing the trees.

It is possible you may be referring to cherry shot hole, a fungal disease. You may notice yellow leaves with reddish brown spots. The fungus overwinters on fallen leaves, and good control can be achieved by raking and removing all cherry leaves from the planting area. No chemical control is recommended.
You do have the option of sending us digital photos for more information.
