Yellow Leaves on My Magnolia Tree

stringbean added on June 4, 2012 | Answered

I have a five foot wall about 3 feet from the magnolia tree. Now, the leaves are turning yellow. I wonder if there is any relationship between the wall and the tree. The garden center told me it was from the concrete leaching??? I don't know if he is correct.

That could be possible, but only if the wall is relatively new, say just a few years old. If it is older than that, the chemicals in the concrete would have leached out long ago and be gone.
