My Magnolia tree is roughly 30 feet tall and about 40 years old. As of late spring, some leaves are wilted and the newer leaves are a lighter green. The flowers are still blooming but quickly wilt and die. We had a dry winter but I've been giving plenty of water. Any suggestions?
The problem is likely due to a root or soil related problem- possibly a girdling root, excess soil over the root flare, or root disease. Contact a certified arborist to insepect the tree and the site to determine potential causes of the problem. Magnolia trees in Texas are relatively free of serious pest problems that would cause these symptoms so the problem is like due to a site or condition.
