I have a Chilean mesquite which seems to be sick. it is sapping a lot and losing some of its leaves. The tree is about 5 years old and is water by drip. I was wondering if I should stop using the drips to the tree and fertilize the surrounding area with something. Any suggestions would be great.

STOP watering and forget the fertilizer. Water deeply only in the heat of the summer and only ever 3-4 wks. Mesquite are arid plants and do not need fertilizing.
