our two year old cherry tree has black spots all over over the leaves and al le cat as had a right old time sharpening her claws on the trunk
OH has staked around and wrapped string round so she keeps her paws off.

Hmmm, just looking at the ornamental cherry in my front garden (ancient, ignored except when in flower) and some of its leaves also have black blotches. Could this be what they do at this time of year?

Our sycamores have black blotches on leaves too. Think it's Tar Spot. Don't think it does any harm. Must do a search.

I checked out the leaves again today and they are full of holes where the black spots were
Think I need to go into tree surgery.

Now that you mention 'holes' I think I know what it is!
"Leaf spot;"
An extract from my website;
Q; The leaves on my cherry tree have developed dark, round spots which then fall out, leaving the foliage full of holes, how can I prevent this happening?
Ans;
* The damage is caused by the fungus stigmma carpophila., and prevention is easier than cure.
It tends to affect weak sickly trees, so ensure you feed and water when necessary.
An occasional foliar feed will also help.
* Spray affected trees with a bacterial canker control at leaf fall.

Oh thanks for that, I shall do exactly that

Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.
