Elm and Poplar Trees Don’t Have the Usual Amount of Leaves


Gabe added on June 15, 2015 | Answered

I live in the high desert in sunny California. I noticed my trees don't have a lot of leaves on them this year. I quit watering because we are experiencing a severe drought. My trees are at least 8 yrs old and I figured they had well established root systems. Will it help if I do some deep watering now?

I would certainly agree that the dry conditions are and will effect your trees.
Lessing leaves is most certainly a sign of stress.
