From the photos, can anyone identify what is wrong with my yoshino flowering cherry trees. I have 4 of them planted in the front of my home. All 4 (some worse than others) are developing dark spots and holes on their leaves. Some leaves are even turning red/orange like it is autumn and falling to the ground. Someone told me it is a fungus however I am unsure.

They were planted one year ago. They are on a drip irrigation for 60 minutes 2 days a week. My soil is very sandy since I live on the east coast shore.

Any insight/help/remedies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Can anyone help? These trees have gotten much worse in 2 months. Now all leaves are starting to rot and fall off. It is way to early for the foliage drop. Thank you in advance.

My only qualification on cherry trees is that I have one Kwanzan cherry tree that gets bagworms and eaten by Japanese beetles. I know zip about tree diseases and pests, so I am afraid I won't be much help.

But I did do a little Googling and found this link that talks about bacterial and fungal diseases. You might try one of their treatments.

Here is another link that talks about 'cherry shothole', which sounds a little like what is happening to your tree.

I wish you the best with your tree:)
