Citrus trees

Asked December 15, 2016, 11:28 AM EST

I live in Galveston County, Texas. I have about 30 citrus trees that have been planted around 20 years. The trees seem to be dying one at a time. They are large trees, the leaves begin to wither, folding inwardly, turn yellow, the trees does not lose its leaves. I have treated the affected trees with Ironite and fertilize all of my trees 2-3 times yearly, in March, May and July with, usually, triple 13. The affected trees are not in the same area of my planting, being separated by 75 -150 feet.

A few shrubs and small trees in my yard have been infected with what my county agent says is anthracnose.

These I have removed and burned.
