Q.Apple Tree Disease Question

Zone London, UK | Anonymous added on February 22, 2022 | Answered

I have an apple tree that has not produced fruit for several years and wonder if you could diagnose the problem and also suggest ways of restoring the tree to fruit-bearing health. The tree is diseased – with the problem affecting both leaves and fruit. The leaves are distorted, with brown patches and silvery trails running through them. There is also a powdery discharge on smaller branches. And when there were fruits, some contained blotchy patches. I have attached photos of the leaves – but I don’t have any pictures of the fruit. Your advice would be appreciated. Many thanks – Tony Stark

This tree is suffering from leaf miners, galls, and infections from infestation. Because multiple systems are involved, I would make sure to contact your local agricultural extension. This will, likely, end with the removal of the tree, though.
