Can anyone identify what's causing chlorosis on this redbud?

I planted three last fall. Two are thriving, but the leaves on this one are quite chlorotic. The only difference is that this one is planted near where an old ash tree was removed.

Chlorosis is a descriptive rather than a diagnostic term. Causes are many: wrong soil pH, compacted soil, too wet, too dry, lack of an essential nutrient, excessive amount of one or more nutrients, etc., etc. A soil test is the only sure way to know the cause in a specfic case like this one.

planted last fall ...

how bad was winter.. where are you ... i had some rather severe.. unexpected damage on plain old RB ...

second... i have had repeated droughts of a few weeks in between good rains... many trees are showing yellow leaves due to the stress ...

a pic of the whole plant might help ...

when you start the post.. with a premise.. on some level.. you start the conversation.. by ruling out too many things ... e.g. i am suggesting a water management issue ... but you started at soil deficiency ... or disease ...

is anything else chlorotic in your yard??? .. if not.. the i would question how there would be a soil deficiency ... and i would fall back to transplant stress .. aka water management ...
