I live in Moscow, Idaho. We have two three-year-old Hat Trick espalier apple trees newly planted (10 days) on the south side of our home. I have noticed darkened tips on a few leaves on each tree, and a few seem to be lighter green. These issues were not present when we planted. If we were sold unhealthy trees I would like to speak to the nursery. If I’m doing something wrong with over- or under-watering, I would like to remedy. This is my first time growing fruit trees.

Thank you very much,
Carly

PS

I tried to upload a few pictures but they exceed the maximum size and I do not know how to reduce their size. I am working on figuring it out...

What I worked out: drag a copy of the photo to the desktop to keep track of it. Open that one, and on a mac anyway, click the markup button to show the markup toolbar. From the toolbar I can select an 'adjust size'  button. There in the height and width boxes; I delete the last (1's) digit.... close the picture. That's been good enough to get within specs to be able to post.

When you go to select your photo(s) for attaching, the copy on the desktop that you altered is pretty easy to find.

The dark areas in the leaf could be some sort of disease and the light green leaves could mean a mineral deficiency. In both cases an application of foliar seaweed fertilizer should help keep the host in an unstressed condition to know more of what to do about these things and the slight boost in nitrogen from this kind of foliar feeding can make up the difference in what nitrogen is possibly lacking in the root zone due to it being dryer under the overhang of the roof.

Slugs can be making a living on fruit leaves. If the edges of leaves are scraped by feeding slugs then this could open up infection sites. 

Any other thoughts??
