What would cause a strawberry guava tree to suddenly drop its leaves? I live in southern FL and the tree had been doing very well. Now it looks like its dying. Leaves turning yellow and falling to the ground. Help!

This can be caused by many, many things. Most of which would need an onsite examination of the tree to determine for sure. At a most basic level, I would recommend treating the tree with both a fungicide and a pesticide. This would treat a large portion of the things that may be wrong with the tree.

If you need a more specific diagnosis, then you should either contact your local extension service or a local arborist or tree expert to have them examine the tree. With a visual examination, they should be able to give you better advice as to how to treat the specific problem.
