Heat Caused Leaves on an Avocado Tree to Wither and Turn Brown

A couple of weeks ago the temperature reached 115 degrees. Within a couple days 1/4 of the leaves withered and turned brown. It is a 38 year old tree, well established. What is the best remedy for such a situation?

The tree was shocked by the hot weather. Keep your normal routine and it will recover

Poor tree! They do sunburn just like humans so that sounds like what you are dealing with here.

You didn't say where you are located, but calling your local agriculture college or home extension office can get you some good solutions that work best in your area to help the tree make a full recovery, but more importantly for prevention of future burns.

A family member from California has tried painting the tree trunk with white paint......but that may be different than what is recommended for your area. Every area is different, so best to the expert for your climate


If you put your town name and the phase home extension services into Google, it should come up near the top. Most have a .org at the end.

Good luck! Hope you still get a good crop of yummies!!
