poor cherry tree
I have a 26 year old fruiting cherry tree. I have kept it well pruned and manageable. The quantity of fruit has grown over the years and last year was a bumper crop. This year it blossomed well but now the leaves and fruit are covered in brown spots and many of the leaves are all brown. Around the base there is a lot of 'roots' coming out of the ground that are dry and crumbly - is it terminal?
This may be a disease called cherry leaf spot. This article has information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/cherry/cherry-tree-diseases.htm
To get a diagnosis and treatment you can take some leaf and fruit samples to the Extension Service. This link will help you locate one: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/
