Oh, no. Did I cause this when, in yesterday's post, I wished that my apple tree would not be so productive this year? Mine, like many others in the area, is experiencing a selective death of some branches while others remain visibly healthy. Google to the rescue! I learned that apple trees are among the most disease-sensitive trees. Blight, fungus, you name it. My plan is to prune off the dead branches and hope for the best.
