Hi everyone I have a tree in my front yard that seems to be getting sick and pretty quickly. Some branches have stopped producing leaves this year and have become covered in moss and lichen. A local arborist society told me they can’t do anything until I know what kind of tree this is. Some plant ID apps have suggested it’s a paradise apple tree or a Chinese elm it’s never grown apples but flowers in the spring. I’ve attached some pictures that hopefully help if anybody has an idea of what’s wrong with the tree please feel free to let me know!!

It probably has Apple Scab. It's a fungal disease that affects both cab and fruiting apples. You can spray as the buds are opening with Captan or use lime sulfur.
