    Like the title says this is my first time growing fruit trees and a number of them are having issues. The first 2 pictures are a plum tree and the rest are from 2 nectarine trees. This is in Huntsville AL and the trees were planted in March. They started with just small red spots and yellowing and now look like this. Not sure whats going on but I don't want them to die, please help!

    Sorry to see that tree struggling!
    It does look like a bacterial infection of some sort. These symptoms grow during wet and rainy seasons.
    The best these trees can get is some good care.

    Keep the trees pruned and cleared of any diseased leafs.
    During watering give the leaves a good rinse.
    You can also make a "garden soap". These are solutions that are harmless to plants but prevent mold and bacterial growth. These have been effective for preventing bacterial leaf spotting and falling leaves, like your trees.

    They will make it with some extra love and care! All the best.
