Cedar apple rust

Zone We live in Indiana | Dolo added on April 8, 2015 | Answered

My dwarf pixie crunch last year looked great in the beginning but then it started to get the orange spots and leaves fell off, and all the apples fell. So this year I want to get a head start on whatever it is I can do. We do have an apple tree next door that needs to be cut down. It's horribly old but maybe we can treat that one too. It has the cedar apple rust too. So please, please tell me what to do. My tree is just starting to bud. These aren't the best pictures, but the first one of the branches show the buds just starting.
