If it was weedkiller (could it have been?) then I'm not sure there's anything you can do - it's a lesson learned to label things clearly.
I don't spray aphids except with a jet of water from the hosepipe ... we encourage birds and insects into the garden ... the bluetit families are feasting on the aphids at the moment, later on in the year the hover flies, lacewings and ladybirds will deal with them. It takes a few years of courage not to spray, but it is possible to create an equilibrium in quite a small garden.
If it was frost damage, then hopefully the trees will grow a second lot of leaves ... have they blossomed yet?
