We have a Red Bud tree that is about 3-4 years old. It flowered this year but now the leaves are turning yellow. What do we do? Water? Don't water? Help please!!

Too much water can cause the leaves to turn yellow, as can a fungal disease. It's difficult to diagnose without seeing the tree. You might want to snip off a stem or branch with the affected leaves and take it to your cooperative extension office or well staffed nursery for help. Once you have a diagnosis you'll be able to treat the problem. Best wishes with your redbud.
