If it has been very rainy, I would check the drainage around the tree to make sure it is not sitting in standing water. This can cause yellow leaves and can be corrected by working towards improving the drainage.

Also, in many areas of Florida, the soil can be sandy and this can cause nutrients to be washed away at a faster rate. If you have sandy soil, and with all your rain, you may need to give the tree some fertilizer.
