This is a case of drastic overwatering, which has led to an infection.

After the first month, watering should cease. The only time extra water should be given will be during times of drought. The soil needs to dry out, very thoroughly, down to about 3 or 4 inches before the tree needs extra water.

From here, you will need a fungicide. This article will help:
