Does anyone know what is wrong with my cherry tree? Black Cherry Aphids? What should I do? I inherited my lovely cherry tree and I adore it but I know nothing about how to care for it. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Thank you. I haven’t noticed ants but I do have several citrus trees in close proximity I just purchased some insecticidal soap I’ll try that. Hopefully it isn’t too late!
I also have a problem with my cherry tree in Moltrasio Italy.
We have had ALOT of rain this spring and my tree looks like it has fungus on the leaf.
By now the tree should have produced the fruit.
Also this tree is very old.
Do I try to remedy or do trees just dye when the get too old, according to my neighbor.
I brought back to fruit a 30 tree orchard that was planted by "johnny appleseed" in up state N.Y., those trees were around 125 years old and had been neglected for over 50 years.
Trees do die from old age, but most will live to around 200 unless they are grafted trees.
In France there are pear trees that still produce that are known to be 250 years old, apple trees that are almost 300 also produce there.
These trees are well cared for all year long though by a staff that has been doing it since they were 14-15 years old.
