I just planted a new apple tree and it is growing fine. Has put out
about 14 inches of grown since the winter.
I am seeing some leaves that have a golden tan-brown spot on the leaf?
What is this and what can I do to get rid of it?
1. Was the tree planted correctly.
2. Did you fertilize the tree when you planted it? With what and how much?
3. Did you prune the tree when you planted it?

Once I determine the 3 questions I can then proceed.

Beware of so-called TREE EXPERTS who do not understand TREE BIOLOGY!
Storms, fires, floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions keep reminding us
that we are not the boss.
Some people will buy products they do not understand and not buy books that
will give them understanding.
Do you have any Junipers or Red Cedars nearby? It could be Apple Cedar Rust,
which is a symbiotic growth between those trees and your apple trees. I have
various sprays to get rid of it, but finally pulled out two Red Cedars near my
trees to stop it. Look for an ugly growth on the Junipers to match the apple
problem. Those trees could be a distance away, say on your neighbors property,
then you have to do the chemical thing.
