My tree has many apricots starting and is very green. The ends of the branches where the new shoots are are all dead or withered. What caused this? Should I spray? This was a surprise when I took a close look. Can you help me? The tree is 3 years old.
You may have had some winter damage to the tree. You can prune the dead branches in the spring or wait.
