Hi I have this lemon tree that is browning at the edges and keeps losing leaves every so often I initially thought that it didn't have enough space initially because it was in such a small pot but I recently moved it to a bigger one but the roots weren't cramped at all so now I'm stumped and looking for answers

Does its pot have drain holes in the bottom?

It looks like a salt buildup problem. If you fertilize, you need to flush the soil before you fertilize again.

It is probably reacting to some root damage done during repotting. How much of the original soil did you remove when you repotted?

The browning edges are the reason for the re-pot, not the result.
