Leaves On Upper Half Of Stewartia Japonica Are Smaller Than Leaves On Lower Half

Question From: B. Payne - Lansing, Michigan, United States
Q: Why are the leaves on the upper half of my Stewartia japonica 1/3 the size of the leaves on the bottom half of the same tree?

A: Your tree is in stress. I recommend you get and on-site inspection from a certified arborist. To find a professional in your area go to www.tcia.org and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
