Cherry Tree Leaves Dead
Hello, I planted three Okame Cherry trees last spring. All three bloomed this year and looked healthy. They are all about 5' tall. In the past month one of them started to develop a condition which resulted in all its leaves dyeing. We have had a lot of rain this spring as most people in the northeast know. Not sure if that can be a contributor.
I have also noticed some spores growing under the tree. It may or may not be related. I know the picture is blurry but I couldn't get the camera to focus.
They kind of look like this: http://mushroomexpert.com/cyathus_striatus.html. My question is, what is going on with this tree? Is it a blight or disease or something else? Can it be treated? I have scraped the bottom of the trunk and its still living, for now. Do I need to remove the dead leaves? And is there anything I can do to improve its condition? If you need anymore information please ask. And thank you to anyone who can give me some answers.
