Brown Spots on Cherry Tree Leaves

11 years ago

Just planted a Stella cherry tree 3 months ago (June '12) which was bought from a local nursery. Carefully replanted and I understand that there is a certain amount of shock the tree will go through as it is changing environments, however, the leaves began to develop brown spots. After the brown spots, the leaves would yellow, then brown, then fall off. This tree is only about 3 feet tall and I deep water every 4 days.

Started to use a fungicide (Garden Safe Brand Fungicide) in late June - will use it every 7 days - however, the brown spots and dead leaves continue. Does anyone have any other suggestions, or any other brands of fungicide they recommend. The exact same thing is happening to my nectarine tree (same age and height as cherry tree and planted at same time).
