health of a new tangerine tree.
I planted my tree 2 months ago. I live in vero beach florida. I fertilized the planting area as advised when I planted my tree. Its been watered pretty regularly but the leaves are light green with brown spots and curled. It just doesnt look healthy to me. Any advise?? I have pics if needed. Thanks Scott

A stressed tree can drop leaves, but spots and curled leaves can indicate pests or disease.
Look for signs of pests; they can be very small.
Avoid water splashing unto the leaves; watering deeply and slowly with a small trickle of water at the drip line is preferred. Careful monitoring of moisture levels in the the first 3 months is recommended. Soil should dry slightly between waterings.
