We recently moved into a new home that has a Southern Magnolia. Now that spring is here, the leaves on the Magnolia seem to look yellowish & dried out. No new buds are emerging. The tree is about 20 years old and about 20 - 25 feet high. Does it sound like it's dying?
This sounds like typical winter damage for Southern Magnolia. This tree sometimes suffers during extreme winter conditions. These trees do better in warmer conditions. The tree should recover if it has access to sufficient nutrients. If you would like to have us come by and inspect the tree, please click here.
