Meyer lemon tree dying!!
My beautiful meyer lemon tree started losing leaves last fall and kept on losing leaves. I started noticing that a lot of the leaves had a spiderweb-like substance. I'm not sure if it was some type of mold or insect residue or what.
We had heavy rains in the Bay Area from January all the way through March, at which time the leaves just kept dropping. The few lemons that the tree has produced have been tiny, the size of key limes or smaller.
Now there are maybe a dozen leaves and no buds. Most of the branches are brown. I have pictures, but the one picture I have w/ the spiderweb-like substance seems to surpass the max (it's 801KB). I also have several pictures of the leaf-less tree.
This tree used to give a LOT of fruit. About 4 years ago, the house owner cut off about 2/3 of the tree b/c it was encroaching on a neighbor's house.
I'd appreciate any advice/help!!
