flowering tree losing leaves.

Asked July 16, 2018, 8:07 AM EDT

We have a tree that is losing leaves. The leaves get brown spots on them and fall off. The tree usually flowers with tiny purple flowers then it gets green leaves in the spring. It did not flower this year.

Without more information, we assume, perhaps incorrectly, that the tree you mentioned is a kind of crabapple. The problem you have described is fairly common for some varieties.
