The Evans cherry tree that keeps trying to die on me has had gummosis.  What
am I supposed to do about that?

Around here I've never seen gummosis on any of my cherries but a lot
of failed peach varieties that I've planted (and have subsequently
died)  have had it....

Claude: I was at a nursery this spring and it had many fruit trees
which were not marked. Worker came out with a box full of labels
and told me he was vague about what tree was what. He guessed about
the tree names. Didn't even know if they were apples or pears.
Unless you have DNA IDs I suspect some trees are mislabeled. My
Norland tree even has more elongated apples than your apples.
