Why Do Yellow Leafed Trees Die?
A tree's leaves serve as a "food factory". They absorb energy from the sun, converting that energy through the magic of photosynthesis
into sugars and starches which are necessary for growth and survival. Large, green leaves on your tree indicate adequate chlorophyll
and sufficient leaf surface are present for efficient food production.
Small, pale green leaves or small yellow leaves do not make
efficient "food factories" and the tree uses all it's energy to keep alive. Once this energy supply is depleted, it's all downhill
for the tree. If nothing is done to make the tree's leaves become green and larger the tree simply dies.
Why iron injections? Injecting
iron into a yellow leafed tree makes the leaves turn green again. Iron is a "catalyst" (makes the change) to start the chlorophyll
production again. Thus, an iron injection makes the tree green again and the tree starts up it's "food factory" and your tree lives
on. No special watering or care is need for the iron injection, just sit back and watch your tree become green.
A product named Cambistat
can been used to increase chlorophyll production in your iron deficient
tree. One of the many wonderful features of Cambistat is darker
green leaf in the Cambistat treated trees which means your tree can overcome chlorosis with the use of Cambistat. I highly recomended
it for trees which are deficient in iron.

Tree injection takes about 15 to 30 minutes. An iron injection will last about 2+ years and the injection holes will heal quickly. But most importantly, your tree will not die and become firewood.
