what's a matter with my pear tree? please help


i could do with some really good advice. Am totally novice and back in March bought two apple and pear trees. The conference pear tree is not thriving and looks unwell; i need to know what's causing it and how to treat, also do not want possibility of spreading to other trees.

Symptoms; new shoots are shrivelled, with some blackening to edges. existing leaves have brown/black blotches which seem to spread across leaves, leaves then become torn and/or have found several black/brown leaves on ground. Leaves are not sticky. Branches seem healthy.

    Try searching Google Images for "pear blister mite" and see if the images match your leaves.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Had a look but don't think it's this - any other ideas? could it be scab?
