Why is my Evergreen Tree Shedding its Leaves?
Have you noticed your live oak, magnolia, or pine tree suddenly dropping its leaves? No need to be alarmed, evergreen trees shed their leaves in the spring. Most of the time this goes unnoticed because they grow new leaves at the same time that they are shedding their old ones. Sometimes certain stressors, such as a lack of water, a lack of nutrients, or compacted soil can cause the tree to lose its old leaves all at once. The new leaves are still tiny, and haven’t budded out yet, so the tree appears to be dying. If you are concerned about the health of your tree, contact a Certified Arborist. Certified Arborists can conduct a soil test to see if nutrients or aeration are needed, and tell you if the tree is water stressed.
