Avocado Tree Losing Its Leaves Early

My 15 year old avocado tree is losing its leaves too early. It is July in Southern California. It has lots of avocados on it, that are about half way there and the leaves are dropping like it is post season. They are brown and yellow and hundreds are falling. It is about 25 ft. tall. Why is this happening? What can I do? Am I going to lose this tree?

Maybe its too hot and it is not getting enough water.

I have some family in your neck of the woods and they all have different suggestions from mite infestation to water chloride issues from the various fires.

They suggested calling your local ag extension and getting an expert opinion. This link is what they gave me:


Good luck! Hope you get an easy to deal with answer and the trees recover!

could it be a weird virus or other disease? Root rot fungi, persea mite, and excess salt accumulations are all things that affect these trees.
