Trees almost never need 'feeding'. For a start, trees create their own food through photosynthesis - applying fertiliser is not feeding. Besides, attempting to ameliorate the soil for a large, long lived organism is a bit of a waste of time.

Are you watering sufficiently? Or perhaps too much? Allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering.

There are a number of possible diseases producing such symptoms - Kabatina shoot blight being one. No control, just clip it out.
