Apple Trees

I've got two apple trees, and I think they're both dying. One is absolutely ancient and had two hollow limbs that we have already had to cut off. Plus the apples never tasted that good, so I have no problem chopping it down. I'm not really sure what's going on with the other tree, though. It looks healthy, except that it's leaves are all minuscule this year. And when I snipped off a couple of smaller branches, it looked like the core could be dead. However, it was light enough that I can't be certain.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks for the book title! I will definitely look into it.

I agree with you on the ancient one. It is just it's time. The other tree, however, appears to be fairly young.
