Q.Plum tree doesn’t fruit

Zone Whitehall NY 12887 | Anonymous added on October 13, 2020 | Answered

I have 2 plum trees that are at least 6 years old that blossoms and loaded with fruit so the tree is all white in the spring and lots of fruit forms until they are about the size of a small marble then they all fall off within days. Any help would greatly appreciated.
