Weeping cherry has holey leaves

Hi all,

I just had a weeping cherry tree planted recently. I was looking at the leaves and almost all of them have holes. Several are turning yellow and in general the tree appears to be in bad shape. I don't think it's insects, it strikes me more as a disease. Here's a picture:


I have a few other fruit trees in the yard; two apples and a peach, and I'm concerned about this spreading to them, as I've noticed a hole or two in a few of their leaves. It's been very wet here recently, unseasonably so, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

It almost looks like there is insects on the leafs. If thats what they are, you should get a closer picture of them. I agree that it appears to be the workings of a fungi, maybe rust, but I'm not sure.
