I removed both apple trees last year hoping that would stop this decimation of my harvest! Peaches this year succumbed to this, no nectarines & no plums! Please help, live in Central Virginia - Piedmont area. What do I do now, cut down all my fruit trees?? Which is what my husband has threatened! Please help!!

Welcome!

Are you sure it is cedar-apple rust? It shouldn't be affecting that many different plants athough they can get different rusts.

Gymnosporangium is a cedar fungus that secondarily affects many apples and pears.

There doesn't seem to much you can do about it other than cut down all cedars hundreds of feet away. Sorry.
