Chlorosis is a result of nurtrient deficiency.  Leaves become a pale green, yellow, white or brown instead of the deep green they should be.  The tree often appears weak and scraggly -malnurished.  I see it most commonly on Oak (particularly Pin), White Pine and Red Maple.  Please read the article to learn all about what it is and how to prevent and/or control it. 

Another note: Chlorosis can resemble and be confused with other tree problems.  Please have a qualified tree care professional diagnose and treat for this potentially fatal condition.

Chlorosis is a symptom of White Pine Decline.
