Chlorosis can generally be described as a micro-nutrient deficiency where the tree lacks iron or manganese. Identifying chlorosis can be done by looking at the leaves: do you notice leaves with dark green veins, a lime green or yellow color, or browning on the leaf edges? The lack of green color in the leaves is caused by a lack of chlorophyll. If a tree has an iron or manganese deficiency, the formation of chlorophyll is compromised and photosynthesis cannot be completed. Typically, the answer to fixing a chlorotic tree lies within the soil.
