My lychee tree has brown leaves ... the tip of the leaves are brown... what can I do?

Lychee tree with tip of the leaves turning brown.

Lychee tree leaves' tips are highly susceptible to dehydration, resulting in a condition known as "browning."

The primary causes of this phenomenon are:

Changes in weather, particularly during the transition from winter to spring.
In some instances, lychee trees are shielded from erinose mites by employing a combination of sulfur and miticide, which may lead to tip browning.

However, it is essential to note that this is a normal occurrence that generally resolves itself at the beginning of the rainy season when the lychee tree generates new foliage.
