Looking out my window, I see trees suffering from drought. I once knew the name for the degrees visible, but I have forgotten and can't find it on the net.

Attempt at describing "level of dryness"

  • Level 1

    The tree is completely without leaves (at a season where it should have at least some leaves).

  • Level 2

    The tree has at least some bushels of leaves on the main branches, interspersed with dry areas without any leaves.

  • Level 3

    The tree has leaves all around the main branches (those which are attached to the stem), but not on any secondary branches.

  • Level 4

    The tree has leaves on the main branches and secondary branches.

Explicit question

What are the names for those levels, or other levels, in case I missed some?
