Start with a soil test. Your tree may have nutritional deficiencies responsible for small leaves. Here is an article that discusses tree fertilization. Check the website of your state extension service because each area of the country has particular soil needs. Routine fertilization will not correct current deficiency, just keep it from getting worse. A soil test will tell you how to correct any deficiencies. Regular watering of a tree that has been fertilized is very important.
