Ailing Avocado

My avocado needs some help. It seems to be dying from the bottom up. It's still producing new growth, but the new leaves dry up shortly after reaching a decent size. Lower branches seem fine, but the main shoot is struggling. The tree is 1 year old, grown from seed.

One year old

The tree looks a lot better than it did a few weeks ago, but there are still a few dead leaves and I'm worried about it spreading again.

RE: Ailing Avocado

keep the plant moist...possible problem.
