Hello- I have 4 Fireside apple trees that are about 12 years old. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed 3 out of the 4 trees had branches that had leaves turning yellow and brown, and the apples were turning mushy and falling off. We did spray a pesticide on the trees a week ago, and I don't see any signs of bugs. I have been all over the internet, I am just not sure what the issue is. I have 5 other apple trees that are about 5 years old (different varieties)that are just fine. Could it possibly be the extra moisture with all this rain? Hopefully the picture I upload is helpful in your determination of what the problem may be. Thank you. Jen Karpenske

You need to contact your local county extension office. They should have a horticulturalist who can help you.
