The leaves on my redbud tree are curling. I have two more redbuds right by it and they are fine. Do you have any ideas?

Redbuds are prone to disease and the symptoms you describe could be caused by virus or microoganism infection, or the result of unusual environmental stress. Uneven moisture uptake can cause leaf curl and stunting, too, and this can be related to calcium deficiency in the soil. So it could be attributed to a number of causes even though others nearby are ok. I would take a cutting of the problem to your local garden center for a diagnosis and inspect your soil conditions. Hope this helps and good luck!
