We have an Apricot tree that is about five years old now. We just started to notice that the leaves are turning yellow from the top down. We can't remember if this has happened in the past. Is this normal fall foliage? Also, should we be trimming back some of the branches this time of year?
You should expect your apricot tree to lose its leaves as it goes into dormancy for a couple months. Yellowing can also be a sign of nutrient deficiency. Apricots (as all fruit trees in some areas) need to be fertilized appropriately to compensate for the native soil deficiencies, if any. You can make an appointment with one of our arborists for inspection and pruning advice.
