Infected Tree

Ms.TiaMariaMay 5, 2012

I'm sorry if this is a repeat post. I'm having trouble submitting my message and I'm a bit computer stupid. Anyway:

My baby apricot tree is sick. The 1 inch green fruits have indented brown fuzzy spots on them, the branches have gaping cankers, and the bark has dust (mold?) all over it. What do I do? The information that I have found on the internet says to prune out infected branches but they ALL have cankers! I would have to prune it all down to a stub. Also it is right next to my fig and cherry trees. Their branches touch each other. Will they become infected too?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Here are some pictures. I am hoping someone will be able to identify the problem. Help please!
