Tree with few leaves

It would have been helpful to know what type of tree you have. Certain trees seem to be more prone to particular diseases than others.

Tree diseases

There are a number of diseases that could produce the symptoms you describe. Some diseases are more prevalent among certain species. Identification of the tree would help us identify the disease and appropriate intervention. There are fungicides available for particular fungi, but success will depend on how advanced the disease. For example, a root rotting fungus is a terminal disease. Trees in urban settings tend to have a difficult time because of air pollution, root compaction, improper pruning, bark trauma from mowers and weeedeaters and other problems associated with location. Once a tree becomes weak, it is more prone to disease. All living things have a finite lifespan. Older trees tend to weaken and become victims of disease and death. Perhaps you could take a picture of the tree to a local tree nursery or to your Dept. of Agriculture Extension Agent for identification of the tree, diagnosis, and recommendations for intervention. Best of luck.

Hi Newtohome,

I have no idea what it is, but besides Twelvepole's recommendations, you might do a search by using http://www.google.com and type in diseases of trees. There might be a photo of what you have in one of them.

Here are just two sites I pulled up -
