Crown Gall on Apple?
Can some one please tell me if this apple tree has crown gall? There are nasty tumor-like growths on the trunk and most of the main branches. We moved on to a property where the fruit trees hadn't been maintained in awhile. Does the tree need to, sadly, come down? Also, I noticed fluffy white stuff on some of the "tumors". Could this possibly be wooly aphids that are taking advantage of the compromised tree? Any advice is greatly appreciated! I have more close up pictures but I seem to be only able to upload one pic at a time. Thank you!!
