[nafex] CAR apple

It has been a bad year for cedar apple rust. This is the first time I 
have seen my apple trees seriously affected.

Question- do I prune out infected and drooping new growth/fruit clusters 
as I would fire blight? It had affected much of the leaves on my Summer 
King apple, so I am reluctant to remove all affected growth, but I do 
not know the consequences of inaction for the long-term.
