Hello everyone. I planted a Gala apple tree about two months ago and it does not look too healthy. All the leaves have these weird yellow raised bumps on them. What could this possibly be and what would be the most effective, all natural, eco friendly solution to bring my Gala apple tree back to health? I have included pictures. Thank you so much for any help you can give me.

It doesn't look all that unhealthy to me. It is hard to tell how "raised" the spots are, but might be a gall of some sort.

Thanks for your input. Could you please explain to me what a gall is? How can I get rid of it. I would like the Gala Apple tree to have healthy green leaves. Thanks so much for your help.

I have great success with taking my photos and even leaves right to my nursery and they are geniuses in helping fix problems. I hope you have a wonderful nursery near you that could be that helpful.
