The tree is a Yellow Newton Pippin.This is the second year in the ground. Can anybody help ID the problem and help with a solution?

Thanx Mike

I'm a little afraid that it might be fireblight; see if the link below helps id it.

I'm pretty paranoid about fireblight, and I tend to see it everywhere, so do get more opinions before doing anything drastic!

Here is a link that might be useful: fireblight information
