Jo Arthur asked 13 years ago

I planted 3 apple trees and two pear trees last year. All are good except for 1 pear tree, the leaves have black/brown spots on them and the tree looks like it is dying. I water them regularly.

Fruit trees do not need regualr watering… only enough to get theme established and during any prolonged dry spell subsequently. Stop watering and make sure to control weeds or grass for 1metre radius minimum.

Pear scab disease is also a possibility as it can affect varieties differently, assuming the 2 pear trees are of different vareities.
