I have a mature locust tree, that over the past 2 to 3 years, the leaves have grown more sparse, and look as though they are curling up. In many areas, there is only as stem where the leaves should have been. The tree is beginning to look quite sickly. I'm afraid it may be diseased with an infestation of some sort. Is there something I can do?
|It's really difficult to diagnose a plant problem without being able to see it! Curling leaves can indicate insect feeding, or a fungal disease. Since we can't look at the leaves under a microscope, it's really best if you take a sample of the tree to your local cooperative extension office for positive diagnosis. The following website can provide the address, just click on your county for contact information, then clip a small branch with leaves attached and visit your extension office. http://www.extension.umn.edu/o...|
