Q.Leaves on Fruitless Mulberry Tree

Anonymous added on May 8, 2011 | Answered

This is a second year tree. As leaves come out, edges are curled and whitish, and the tree does not seem to be doing as good as it did the first year. You think it is not enough water? I do have it in the middle of a lawn.

Did you fertilize your lawn recently? Sometimes lawn fertilizer can be too much for a tree and the roots get burned, particularly if the ground was dry when the fertilizer was applied. This can cause the type of leaf damage you describe. Additional water will help it, if this is the case.
