Possibly water deficit/drought stress .
Water management is vital for plant health and survival.
Water a wide area not just near the tree trunk, water the entire area of the absorbing root zone which spreads as far as the foliar canopy and more.
Water deeply to wet the soil a minimum of six inches, preferably to 10 - 12 inches.
Fertilize spring and summer with a slow release complete organic fertilizer.
