How do I stop this problem? I have got two trees from a friend and lots of leaves are falling off. The soil seemed to be very dry when I got them, too.

If the soil was very, very dry when you got the plants, the soil may be resisting taking up water. Fill your tub or a large bucket with water and place the plants in the water and let them sit for about an hour. This will force the over dry soil to once again take up water and should help with the leaves falling off.
