We had a very rainy winter, I’m assuming it has a fungal problem of some sort, but I am unsure of which fungicide I should use to treat it with? Could I get some insight into the problem my tree has please? Many thanks Neshamah

This appears to be shothole disease. Normally, this is controlled with copper fungicides, but if you intend to eat the almonds, then I would opt for a different treatment.

You can try fungicides that contain sulfur. These can be effective, but good sanitation will be more important.
