My apricot tree was planted out front for the most sunshine. I have had it for about four years and with one to three apricots. The new branches don't put on leaves and turn dark brown and die. I was so looking forward to apricots but have no success. It is also sparce on the other branches. I heard it can get leaf curl and I'm thinking of doing away with it cause it just doesn't look healthy. How do I help it, or should I start over? I live in Portland, Oregon and I'm not sure it is working.
