Plum Tree

I bought and planted some 4′ tall, bare root plum trees back in February of this year. All was looking good until I noticed some brown marks on the leaves of one tree. I sprayed with “ferti-lome” Triple Action Plus II. Now the leaves have a curling look and some are falling off the tree. The other 7 trees seem to be doing good. What is the likely problem and the fix?
