Remove the bottom leaf and wound the base of the stem by cutting away a sliver of bark, about one inch long.

Why is my jacaranda tree turning yellow?

If the jacaranda is stressed from too little water, the leaves yellow, wilt and drop prematurely. Those getting too much water are more likely to have smaller than normal leaves, branch tip die-off and premature leaf drop. Overwatering also leaches minerals from the soil, which may also be a factor with a sick tree.
