I have 2 apricot trees. They bloom, get fruit, and then the small fruit falls off. How can I get the fruit to stay on the tree and mature? Kate Hamon

This is caused by poor pollination. The blooms don't get pollinated so the tree aborts the fruit while small because they will not produce seeds. The easiest way to correct it is to help make sure that there are plenty of pollinators around when the tree is in bloom. These articles will help:
