Hope you don't think I'm nitpicking, but I don't see how you could be in zone 2, and be growing an almond tree. Even hardy almond, which is an ornamental, is only hardy to zone 5. If you're truly in zone 2, I'd love to know what kind of almond you would even attempt there. More information on USDA hardiness zones can be found here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/planting-zones/usda-planting-zone-map.htm
To return to almond trees, yellowing and dying leaves might be caused by a number of things
such as too much or too little water, soil problems, too little light, insects, or disease. This article goes over the most important things involved in raising healthy almonds: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/colletia/growing-almond-nut-trees.htm
If you have a county extension service nearby, you can take some leaf samples to them to see if they can identify your problem. This link will help you locate the nearest office: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/what-is-extension-service.htm
