I have a Meyers Lemon Tree and all the leaves have fallen off of it. What can i do to bring it back to life or will it come back during the spring?

While broadleaf evergreens such as citrus tend to lose their oldest leaves it is unusual for them to shed all their leaves all at once so I think there's some stress involved. If your tree is indoors, dry air or overwatering are the usual causes. If your tree is outdoors, a cold snap can cause it to drop its leaves. In this case, new foliage usually appears in the spring. Let's hope for the best with your tree.
