Did you have a weather event like drought? Were the leaves eaten by webworms, which favor this tree? Did the leaves yellow first before dropping?

There is a serious disease called mimosa wilt, which can cause leaf and branch loss. Read the info below and if you think your tree has it, water it frequently and apply a 10-10-10 fertilizer.
