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?
