Hi Guys,

Just looking for little help trying to identify what's affecting my apple trees. There seems to be 2 different problems. I have attached a photo below.

The leaf on the left is suffering from brown spots. I've read up on different diseases that affect apple trees but don't think I can pin point which one it is ... Rust, Scab, Frogeye leaf spot to lacking in nutrition.

The leaf on the right looks like its being eaten but also has a slight sliver hue in one corner.

Would love your thoughts and ideas

Not Scab, Never heard of Rust on Apple trees, could be weather damage , not just as a cop out but could be rain drops followed by warm sunshine causing a burning of leaf. Not a serious problem at this time of year as leaves are approaching the end of their lifespan.

No doubt pest attack are much powerful of plants and trees and we need to take some positive steps to save our plants form the harmful insects.

It could be either of the 2 above in all honesty. Hopefully you are able to work it out sooner rather than later, sorry I am not much help on this one!
