    Hello All,

    I planted this Orange tree about 16 months ago. In the beginning it had hard time. Lost much of its leaves, probably because I planted it right before summer. Then few months back, this curling leaves started to appear. How do I heal my Orange tree please?

    Thank you.

    You have citrus leafminers, it is not a disease it is a insect.

    Hi
    here in the tropics we constantly get leafminer (phyllocnistis citrlla)on most of our citrus, it wont kill your orange tree, it just looks unsightly and no body likes to have it on there citrus.
    the best thing we have found is to remove the infected leaves and prune back the tree and than spray in sucession with pest oil every 2weeks, it will keep it under control.
