We have two cherry trees (red fruit bearing ) in our back yard that are about 7 years old. They have been pruned as needed and are looking very healthy. For the last two years shortly after the cherries have ripened and the birds have picked them clean the leaves begin to yellow and fall. By early August the tress is bare. There is nothing visable on the leaves, trunk or branches that would indicate the tree is diseased.
Any idea why these trees are losing their leaves so soon?
I should add that they are right on the edge of a swail so I don't think they are stressed from lack of moisture. We also had twice the normal amount of rain this year (~72")
