Second thing to do is prune out all the infected parts of the apple trees and properly dispose of those parts. (proper disposal is bag and seal, bag and seal the first bag, take to land fill or find a working incinerator to burn them in. they need around 1200 degrees f to be destroyed)
Then make a good aerated compost tea and spray the apple trees with it, repeat this step once a month for 12 months of growing season.
Also spray the compost tea on any juniper tree you find to prevent a recurrence.

I started a pack of 25 and every single seed sprouted. These things are like seeds on steroids. Just yesterday I took a batch out of the fridge that started sprouting. One of the seeds has already pushed through the soil and dropped the seed husk.
I'm seriously impressed...now if some of them can handle the CAR we're in business.
