What’s wrong? Leaves turning yellow and falling off . Growth stunted.
Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. This could be due to many issues, though. Over and underwatering, nutrient deficiency, or diseases will be most common, depending on where and how the damage appears.
In the meantime, this article will help you to know what care that Magnolia trees require:
My magnolia tree began loosing more leaves than usual this year. There are spots on the leaves and some white spots on the underside of some of the leaves
This looks to be multiple fungal and bacterial infections. Usually, this occurs in soil that remains wet without a chance to dry out. It could be the luck of the draw with contaminated soil, though.
Fungicides will take care of the issue. These articles will help:
I have a young little gem magnolia tree that was attached by some goats today. Several of the lower branches are broken. Will the branches take root if I put them in water? Will the main tree be ok? Will new branches grow out from the bottom part of the trunk? What can I go to help it. This is a very special tree. Thanks
It will be fine, unless the goats can still get to the tree. There is no guarantee that it will not happen again if the goats still have access to it.
You could make an attempt to root the branches for more trees. This article will help:

The grass and leaves of the hostas under the tree is covered with a glossy sticky substance, while there are a white patches on the branches. Sorry I do not have a cell phone to take a photo. The tree looks healthy and had lots of large blooms earlier. The leaves looks very healthy.
The white patches could be insects like aphids, scale or mealybugs. If you cannot take close up pictures then put a sample in a sealed, transparent plastic bag and take it to your local garden center for identification. The glossy, sticky substance could be honeydew (excrement) from the insects.
I recently planted a new magnolia. It is putting out new branches near the base. Should I trim them, or ignore them? The tree is about 4 ft.tall now.
If the tree has been grafted (you should see the graft near the base of the tree), and the branches are appearing below the graft, they need to be removed.
I had my first bloom but it turned brown starting the second day. It has been extremely hot here in Texas lately. I would like to know if I need to move it to a shadier spot. Right now it gets sun until about 2 or 3 PM.
Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see what, exactly, is going on. It sounds like bud rot. Typically, this is due to moist soils that do not have a chance to dry out on top. This will need the attention of a fungicide. Copper based fungicides are most effecting, especially since this tree is not for human consumption. Here is an article that will help:
