Focus on soil and water management. Trees with nutritional deficiencies and water deficit or excess will be more vulnerable to pest and disease issues.
The best is a soil test and prescription mineral and biological amendments. But a general purpose, natural/organic, slow release fertilizer is next best.
If you use 70% Neem Oil (clarified hydrophobic extract of neem oil), its a fungicide, miticide and insect pest repellent. But a one time application will not be effective for more than two weeks or so. You need to repeat the application every two weeks during the growing season.
