We planted a young Yoshino Cherry Tree about a month ago (we are in zone 7a). Watered every other day for the first week or two. We've had a fair share of rain since. We also have clay soil so it maintains a lot of moisture. Noticing a bit of new growth which is good but also see some yellowing leaves toward the bottom half of the tree. Some of the new leaves are yellowing too. Poked my finger down by the base of the trunk the other day and the clay was waterlogged. Could the yellowing perhaps be a function of too much water or due to some type of disease? Is there a chance we might lose the tree? Thank you!

Welcome!

Cherry trees hate waterlogged soil. If the drainage in your yard is poor, you will never grow a cherry.
