What is wrong with this tree

miketropicJune 17, 2014

I only had 4 or 5 trees when I got this property so I wanted to them all. I went out today and found the leaves on one of them looking like the pic. Almost the whole tree is like this. What caused it and will it kill it? I don't even know what kind of tree it is but I don't want to have to cut it down. Thanks

why dont you start with IDing the tree ...

and then find out what virus hits that tree

and then research from there ...

i had something similar on hack trees... very ornamental ... i wouldnt waste money on it ...

frankly.. it makes a plain old green tree.. variegated.. and that is a plus in my world.. lol

I think it is a hackberry and its very very large..im a nut for variegation so I like it I just wondered what it was that caused it
