Black cherry tree losing leaves

Asked June 30, 2019, 7:29 PM EDT

I just noticed my larger 60’ plus cherry trees are losing leaves and others are turning yellow and developing spots. Was the rainy spring to blame or do I have a bunch of diseased trees

Yes the rainy spring is probably to blame.
There are several diseases that cause cherry leaves to turn yellow and fall off the tree. If the spots are small it is probably cherry leaf spot.
If the the spots are larger and only a few it is most likely bacterial canker
