Apple trees dying


Hi. Over the last 2 months, my apple trees have started to get branches where the leaves turn brown and the branch appears to die. Also, the apple fall off. I cut off the first few branches, thinking it was isolated, but the “problem” appears to be increasing, ie a branch every week or so. Any thoughts please? Thanks.
