William C. Garthright asked, "I assume this is to prevent the spread of the 
disease, Jim, but are you
not cutting off the diseased parts of the tree?"

    The only branches I cut off are those that are obviously dead.  My 
Yellow Transparent Apple is infected from where I cut of dead branches neat 
the top, all the way down the trunk to within 24" from the ground.  Now, 
orchard visitors ask, "Why did you paint that tree red?"
