Corkscrew Mulberry Tree
We have a corkscrew fruitless mulberry tree that has been growing well for the last five years. This year the tree sprouted leaves as normal, but now the leaves are curling up and falling off the tree leaving behind bare branches. The leaves do not have black spots nor do they turn yellow. Any idea what is affecting our tree? The tree is about eight feet tall with a trunk of 12 inches in circumference.
Did the leaves turn yellow before the fell? If so, your tree may be suffering from iron deficiency. Adding iron to the soil and using a foliar spray may help. Unfortunately, if that's not the case, most mulberry diseases prove fatal.
