Q.Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree Problems

Anonymous added on April 18, 2014 | Answered

Last year I planted semi-dwarf apple, peach and pear trees. The peach and pear trees are fine. Something is chewing up all the leaves of the apple tree. There is also a white fluffy substance on the branches. I would appreciate help with these problems.
