Newly Transplanted Magnolia Tree Has Yellow Leaves With Brown Spots

Question From: R. Oscher - Ridge, New York, United States
Q: Recently transplanted magnolia tree. Now I see yellow leaves with brown spots on them. What causes this

A: Leaf spot - transplanting is stressful. Trees and shrubs often react by losing leaves. These leaf diseases are rampant this year. Just make sure your newly transplanted tree is well watered but not drowned. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
