Answer: Based on your description it is difficult to make a diagnosis. The symptoms you described could be related to a number of factors ranging from inadequate watering to over watering to accidental herbicide spray drift to overfertilizing to a disease problem and so on. You might want to consult with the nursery where you bought the tree and/or with your county extension (566-0673) to try to figure out what is happening to your tree. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
