My avacado tree is about 6 ft tall now, and the bottom leaves are browning on the tips. roughly 3 ft up the tree. Why is this?

Browning leaf tips on avocado trees can indicate over or under watering or fertilizer burn. You can help your tree avoid this by flooding the soil to help leach out salts, and by watering deeply but infrequently during the growing season. The brown tips won't hurt the tree but they look unsightly so try leaching the salts from the soil in the spring and again in the late summer. Best wishes with your avocado tree!
