Q. Apple Trees

I have an 8-year-old Gala and Fuji. Both of them are losing the bark on their trunk and branches. There is a black sooty residue on the Gala and some green moss growing on both. I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Q. Fire Blight Treatment

Our Gala apple has some fire blight. It is time to put dormant spray on the rest of our 20 trees. I have read that Copper is a good treatment for this. Which one should I spray on first and how long between to put on the second? Thanks.

Q. pest prevention on apple trees

Did not know when or with what (preferably organic) I could spray on my apple trees to prevent pest problems this spring. My first year to have apples on my trees and I am losing most of them to insects eating holes in them (as well as birds) or stinging them making them start to rot. Do not see any bugs on them. What can I spray on them while they are dormant and when should this be done? Have a Gala, Honeycrisp and Pixie Crunch.
