[NAFEX] apple tree with fireblight

Hard to remove fire blight.  But it depends on what variety of apple.
Some varieties have a some degree of resistance.  You can fight it
for years and it keeps coming back if the tree doesn't die first. 
Good luck.  If the tree is badly infected cut it down and burn before
it spreads to your other trees.  I have cut out the infected branches
on some trees and they lived OK.
