What Is the Disease Affecting My Apple Trees

applejack added on October 14, 2015 | Answered

My apple trees are over 20 years old and have produced well over the years. Last year they became infected with a disease that is killing them. The disease shows up as small bumps and circles on the bark in a series of spirals that circle the tree trunk. This year the trees did not leaf out much or produce any fruit. I believe they are dying and I want to replace them but need to know how to protect new trees from the same fate.

This sounds very much like you are describing Galls.

This is a disease that is generally fatal to the trees.

I've listed some links with more information.
