Yellow leaves on fruitless mulberry trees
Why are the leaves yellow on all the fruitless mulberry trees in North Texas? After much concern for my tree shedding the horrible looking yellow leaves, it has all year, including the summer. I ventured out across North Texas to find that most of the fruitless mulberry trees I encountered looked the same or worse than mine. Now we have had a very large amount rainfall this year but I have never seen it affect the trees like this before.

Yellowing leaves generally do indicate a watering issue. To much or to little.
With the reports of heavy rain, this is likely the issue.
There are a few other issues for the Fruitless Mulberry with symptoms of yellowing leaves.
I would suggest contacting your local county extension office and expressing your findings on the multiple trees with symptoms.
They may be aware of any widespread problems.
