We have two Brazilian Pepper trees. One we have had for three years and is doing great. The other tree is two years old, and just recently, seems to have started dying, as only the lower branches remain green. We have tried to use a product that was purchased at the same nursery to revive the tree with no results. Should we try pruning the higher branches?
It sounds to me like the tree is root bound. This is very common in newly planted trees. You can either wait and see what happens by spring, or you can replace it if it's too far gone. If you do replace it, I would recommend finding a different nursery. If these suggestions are not helpful please contact our experts at Bartlett Tree Services.
