Hello. I have a 3 or 4 year old Moorpark Apricot tree. It is April 18, 2017. Leaves have been growing and then turning brown and dying. Do you know what is happening? Steve.

This looks like a physiological problem rather than a disease. When leaves turn brown on the tips and edges first, this often indicates either a lack of water getting to the leaves, or toxicity from excessive fertilizer, salt, or another toxic substance in the soil around the tree.
