So I checked in on my trees today, and overall the majority of them look great. I sprayed them with sevin last week, and I’ll spray again this week to keep the Japanese beetles off. They were grafted either last spring (meaning 2 years ago) or this spring (meaning the one we just had). Additionally I have a few that were from SLN this year. I only have pictures of a few, but most of them have similar symptoms (if they ARE symptoms).
All of the trees had manure put on top of the soil this year, and those that are 2 years old got it last year. I’ve limed both years, as I’m sure the pH is a bit low. I’ll continue liming slowly each year. The soil they’re in varies from a mix of pond muck and sandy field soil that, to some super sandy stuff, to kinda heavyish soil on the edge between a really sandy portion of my food plot and a swamp. pH I’m guessing will be low in all places, but I was stupid and got trees in before I planted, and didn’t want to shock them with dumping too much on at once.
