Q.

fruitless mulberry

Zone 8b-9a | skybird added on May 4, 2012 | Answered

Our mulberry tree leaves are turning yellow, than shriveling up, weirdly. A number of the yellow leaves are falling off but the shriveled ones are not. It started on one side of the tree and is spreading across the canopy. The tree gets plenty of water. I really don't want to lose our tree. Anyone know what is wrong?

It may be pests like aphids or it could be a fungus. Both can cause these symptoms. Treat the tree with neem oil. Neem oil treats both pests and fungus, so which ever it is, it will take care of it. Get up as high as you can get it. It is systemic, so will be absorbed by the tree and will help protect the whole tree.
