There's really nothing I can recommend spraying at this point. The only problems that are common in your neck of the woods are fungal diseases, which you can control with a series of preventative sprays during the dormant season and again in early spring. If your trees develop fungal diseases this year, make a note on your calendar to do some dormant season spraying next winter and early spring. As long as you keep your trees watered on a regular schedule and you feed them after they leaf out, they should thrive. Best wishes with your trees.
