Q.Jacaranda Branches Dying

Zone South Africa | Vossie added on April 3, 2020 | Answered

The branches are starting to die on my jacaranda tree. The branches with leaves are a lighter shade of green than that of my other jacaranda trees. The tree in the photo get watered most frequently (once every two days) with sprinkler system. Is this a watering problem or something else? PS. Just after it started budding we had a heatwave and eveything turned brown that was green.

Yes, the overwatering is likely causing disease. These should only need water during drought, or periods of dry weather.

You may want to treat with a fungicide. This article will help:
