I am wondering what would cause the leaves to fall off of the Washington Naval Orange Tree.
It doesn't appear to be dried out, the leaves are green and I water it as recommended. They are just dropping off.
Thanks for your help

Unfortunately there are many possible causes ranging from the room being too hot or too cold or the air too dry to under or overwatering to possibly an insect problem such as scale. You might review the care instructions in the following article and see if any environmental factors might be causing it. At this time of year, low light combined with dry indoor air and overly warm room temperature can cause leaf drop.
