First, the person in the picture is my brother.  I did not want to break the camera........ but I did want to show the size of the tree.

The tree just started turning yellow a few days ago.  The whole tree will be yellow by tomorrow, the next day at the latest.  We have had plenty of rain.  Normal for us.  The tree has always, (up until three years ago), been maintenance free.  I am now leaning toward a problem with the soil.  I will take a sample to the local office and see what comes up.  It will be gone a week, before I can take a sample.  I will keep you guys informed on the progress.

Again, thank you guys for all the help!!

I will do another pruning.  Did a MAJOR pruning last year.  Seems like the next big step is to get the soil checked.  I will do this asap.  Will be out of town all next week.  On return will work on these problems.

Thank you guys very much for the input.  I will keep you informed on the outcome!

Thanks Bass.  I will do that.  Does this look like rust?

Here are some pictures of the tree, roots and leaves.  The whole tree is turning yellow now and has the "rust" all over it.  Some leaves have already begun to fall.  Less than 30 days since the leaves began to come out.  I dug in several places around the tree and don't think I found any nematodes.  I have included pictures to verify.  Let me know what you guys think.

I will check the roots today and take pictures of the leaves.  Hopefully someone can verify for me the leaf rust.  I am 95% that is what I am seeing.  

If the culprit is leaf rust, is there a way to stop it for good, or will I have to continue to treat it from here on out??  If so, in either case, how do I treat it?  What I have been doing is not working!

This is very frustrating!!

James,

I am not familiar with air layering.  Can you elaborate?

Thanks for the response.  I will take some pictures and post them.  Maybe someone can verify for me.  

I have been using Bordeaux fungicide this year.  I did not get a chance to put the third application.  I don't see the use in it.  I used one pound of Bordeaux in 12 gallons of water.  Is it possible to use too much??

I live in northern Louisiana and I believe I have a  Celeste approximately 15 years old.  It produced spectacularly until three years ago.  It developed a  
leaf rust (to the best of my knowledge) and defoliates one or two  
times during the summer.  The fruiting has practically ceased.  After  
the first year I used a copper fungicide with no apparent results.   
The second year I used Bordeaux fungicide, as recommended by "tree  
expert", also with no apparently results.  The tree still defoliated.   
This year, as soon as the leaves started to appear, I applied Bordeaux  
again, ten days later again, and will apply the third application  
again in ten days.  I have already noticed on numerous leaves the rust  
appearing again.  Every year when the tree defoliates I gather and  
burn the leaves and any other material under the tree.  I have pruned  
the trees so no limbs are even close to the ground.  What can I  
do???!!!!  I would like to save the tree if at all possible and want  
to make sure the new trees will not suffer the same problem.  

Just went outside and looked at my tree..............Most of the leaves have turned yellow and some have already fallen off!!  The leaves have been out for 25 days.  

I am at wits end!!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Eric
