Sick apple trees...what do I do??
I have 5-6 apple trees a few of which are looking not good this year. No apples ever on Honeycrisp that have been in ground for 5 years. Trees are losing leaves resulting in full branches with no leaves, leaves curling, but no sign of bugs eating them that I can see. Very few apples on other trees this year too. I just took out sod and heavy mulched 3 feet around all trees...and put in tree stick fertilizer ( in late June). I don’t want to lose these trees, but not sure what to do next. Live in zone 3 near Crosslake. Pictures of Honeycrisp below
