My apricot tree leaves dry up and branches wilt and die. Leaves are pale yellow on some branches.

Half the apricot tree is dying back a bit more each year. I have been to a nursery and was told it’s leaf curl, so I sprayed the tree as told, but it still has the same problems. I need help or I will cut it down. Regards mick.

This will be considered a life long illness and will eventually lead to the death of the tree. The soil will remain infected, and the only option is annual treatment with fungicides. Prevention of spreading will be the only option at this point. Most treatments may prove unsuccessful, but it is advised to continue treating until it responds.
