Tree leaves will have a dark interior along the veins and will be very light green or even yellow on the outer portion of the leaf. In advanced stages, brown spots will appear among the leaf veins.

Leaves with Iron Deficiency

What Will Happen To My Landscape?

Iron deficiencies usually show signs of tree and shrub stress typically among pin oaks, azalea, rhododendron, maples and hollies. The nutrient loss will stunt the growth of leaves; this will cause trees and shrubs to be unable to produce food properly.

What Can I Do About Iron Deficiency?

Some over the counter products are available at your local nursery or hardware store. Be sure to purchase products that have a high iron content to correct the deficiency present.
