Jul 09, As you can see in the attached photo the leaves on my olive tree are turning yellow and dropping off. This began some months after planting the tree last spring and has continued this year so the tree has lost about 60~70% of its leaves with the top of the canopy being most affected.
The gardener I hired planted the tree in a sandy soil mixed. Dec 14, Olive trees with dry, falling leaves may be suffering from water issues or a disease. Olives are not prone to many diseases, but there are a few that can cause defoliation and drying leaves. Water.

There is often a flush of leaf loss post-bloom. If the majority of the canopy is yellow, it may be a lack of nitrogen that is causing the yellow leaves. If nitrogen deficiency is the cause, then a few good doses of fish emulsion.
Leaves may wilt, fade, turn yellow and drop off, and bark at the soil line may be unnaturally dark. Mild cases can be treated by watering less and applying a mild systemic fungicide to reduce the spread of fungi that contribute to root rot.
