Help with cherry tree

Here's a picture of leaves from our cherry tree. The leaves are falling prematurely. We had plenty of blossoms in the spring, and I didn't really notice what was happening until I was spreading some pine straw under the tree today. I'm pretty concerned -- it doesn't look good.

Thanks!Image

Re: Help with cherry tree

There is a disease called Cherry Leaf Spot. That might be what it is.

Wikipedia has good information about this disease including a picture of some leaves that look similar to yours.
