We planed the tree in the fall, following instruction from the grower, but there are several branches towards the bottom of the tree showing signs of browning. Is there anything we can do. We have had a very wet winter and spring so I'm worried the water is not draining well. Could this be the problem?
The browning could be a couple of different scenarios. It could be transplant shock and the plant is getting used to the site. It could also be winter damage. If it is located next to a sidewalk or driveway, it could be salt damage. Finally, if the soil is not draining properly it could have a root rot problem known as phytophthora root rot. We can always better assess a problem in person. You can click here to schedule an appointment today.
