Montmorency cherry tree leaves yellow

Asked August 6, 2020, 8:41 AM EDT

The leaves on my montmorency cherry trees are turning yellow on branches at bottom of tree. They do not have spots but seem to turn almost completely yellow overnight . What could be causing this and how can I remedy? Thank you.

The yellowing is probably due to not enough water during the very hot weather. Trees need an inch of water per week and more if the soil dries to a depth of two inches.
