Yellow leaves are usually indicative of under- or over-watering. A young tree needs lots of water at first. When established water deeply and less frequently. Good drainage is essential. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Has it been fertilized? Lack of nitrogen can cause yellow leaves. Also, some yellowing and leaf drop is normal.
