Based on the tree's age, my guess is that the soil is getting a buildup of salts. You may want to try deep flushing the plant once a month or so to clear the salt from the roots. You may also want to consider repotting the plant. Here are some other helpful tips for you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/avocado/what-causes-avocado-leaf-burn.htm
