We are just back from a fortnight holiday and find our garden fruit trees devastated by extreme gales while we were away. Almost all the leaves on a large cherry tree are dry, curled and brown as are many of those on pear and apple trees. The young fruit has turned into little black balls. Many wayside deciduous trees in the area are also affected. Is there anything we can do and what is the hope for the future?
