It looks as if the leaves are brown. I'm considering buying it for $140.

Hard to say for sure, but I doubt it has any disease or is dying... They are great trees for a beginner and are very forgiving, but when you introduce them into a new atmosphere they often will turn yellow and do a leaf drop. But it won't be long before they burst back out in green leaves.

If the leaves are brown, don't buy it! NEVER buy anything that isn't 100% healthy -- especially when you have so little experience with trees or plants.

Better, close up pictures may help. From this picture I don't think there is something wrong with the tree (except the price Shocked ). It looks like a new growth for me, usually very reddish-brown looking on Salicaria, Nerifolia, Salicifolia etc etc etc.

Cheers

Looks like new growth to me. Who is the seller?

Price seems a bit steep.
