Acacia tree leaf tips turning yellow and brown

enderwiggin30December 3, 2012

I have a new acacia tree planted 10ft. However, the leaf tips are turning slowly yellow and brown. I give about 24 gallons of water around the tree once a week.

Why are the leaves turning yellow then brown ?

I'm no expert, but I think you may be over watering. Have you seen the information in this thread about watering new trees?

Thanks for the replies. I will drop down the watering schedule to every two weeks. I just get worried when I see the ground hard as a rock. Soil here is not the regular soil I am used to. Thanks.
