I had this happen to many trees in my collection... It took awhile to find out. It was from using mulch that had eucalyptus in it, which was harming the plant. As soon as I removed the mulch, it was fixed within a few weeks (the old growth is still on there looking ugly, but the new growth doesn't suffer from the same curly leaf look).
