Mesquite leaf drop

Posted by Marlene , Jun 28,2005,03:50       Forum


We planted a large Mesquite tree about 60 days ago. It was doing very well for about 30 days with a lot of new buds and leafs. I was watering the tree once a week and a day after one of the waterings, 60-70% of the leafs dropped. I thought it was because of overwatering so I stopped watering it. The tree has continued to lose leafs (at a slow pace) and I don't see any new growth. What could be wrong??
