That tree needs to be feed and sprayed with some fungus control soon or just pull it . Weak plants get sick feed it . It looks small so a few table spoons of epsom salt at the base then 4 oz of hydrgen peroxcide in a gallon of water to wash it in . 1/2 hour later water it again to soak it in this should help if your soil is somewhat decient.   Some coffee grinds all around the roots works wonders over time .

Needs to be sprayed with a fungicide ASAP.

Remove all dead fallen leaves from ground around tree. (prevents fungus spread)

General purpose fertilizer.

Re-spray as need.

 

Use a fruit tree spray next year as soon a leaves come out.

I had my wife take pics of our tree, I pruned it very hard 3 yrs ago and haven't touched it since. I might get more than 2 bowls of apple sauce this year.

You are going to need some monkeys to pick all those apples.

 

My grandfather had a metal basket on an extendable pole type of thing to pick apples from up in the tree. Kind of like a clam rake, but sized for apples.

Going hold off picking as long as I can and feed them all to the pigs
