Without seeing the tree, it is hard to say for certain. My best guess will be a fungal infection. This can happen when the tree is planted in heat, and gets watered just a little too much in compensation.

Many times, the winter should take care of it. Freezing temperatures can help drastically. I would also treat with a fungicide to be sure. This article will give you more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
