Avocado Tree leaf browning
« on: September 14, 2020, 12:21:08 PM »
At the beginning of the summer our avocado trees were doing really well. Now they both have browning on the leaves. Any thoughts? Still trying to get the watering down pat, during summer I water three times a week. Socal here so was wondering if it was margin burn from chloride salt in irrigation water.

Pretty typical here in CA due to excessive dissolved solids/salts in our water.  Some trees may even drop all of their leaves.  Groves in parts of Santa Barbara County can be leafless this time of year.  Then flowers come, then new leaves.  Check in mid-July and your tree should be fully leafed out, old fallen leaves on the ground.
