Since all of your trees are exhibiting the same symptoms, I think it is due to salt build up in the soil, or from poorly draining soils. You can flood the soil around the trees to leach out the excessive salts. When you water, water deeply so the salts are carried down beyond the root systems, then allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Be careful with fertilizers (the main cause of salt build up in soils). Hope this information helps!
