We have a well established Mulberry Tree. (main trunk is approx 10 inches diameter, height is approx 18 feet). Each spring it comes into leaf normally, but after about 2 months (circa July) the leaves develop brown spots and bigger brown patches and begin to curl up. By August/Sept both the leaves and the developing fruit begin to fall. Very little fruit ripens normally. The tree has followed this pattern each year for the past five years. We are reluctant to have it removed. Can anyone tell us what the problem is, and whether it can be treated?
