Cherry leaf diagnosis

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if this leaf shows a lack of nutrients or nutrient. This is from an avenue of cherry trees that haven't been touched in years. I'm in the process of remedial pruning them all, taking out rubbing and crossing branches, I have noticed they are sparsely leafed. They have had something chewing on the leaves but not significantly.

I'm just thinking they need a good feed??

HCR   

Could be nitrogen deficiency but given the yellowing is more towards the leaf tip I'd be more inclined to go with magnesium.

Can we see a photo of the 'something chewing' leaves, it may be something more serious Pseudomonas syringae pv morsprunorum shot hole leaves and yellowing leaves together with sparse foliage are all symptoms of it. Remedial pruning may not be the solution .

Goaty   

Does rocksalt affect cherrys? Not a tree that grows well on the coast with salty winds. If road got blathered with salt for the first time this winter, there isnt a broad area to wash away is there?
