Healthy Almond Tree Suddenly Lost Leaves And Died In A Week

Question From: Bentonville, Arkansas, United States
Q: Hi, I had a perfectly healthy 2 year old almond tree just suddenly die. It went from full of green leaves to completely bare in about a week's time. It wasn't dry, it wasn't too wet, it just died out of the blue. Any idea what might have happened? I live in Arkansas and the tree was in sandy loam and very rich soil

A: Any chance there were use of chemicals in the area. Trees don't just die overnight. Best Nancy
