Black Tartarian tree... Dead or adjusting???
I purchased a Black Tartarian tree about 3 weeks ago from a local nursery. It wasn't in great shape, but it was the last one they had (it has a warranty, so if it dies, I can return it). It has 4 main branches and only one has leaves. The one with leaves seem like they are slowly browning and dying off. One thing I noticed is there there are some buds that are leaving near the ground just above the graft. Can anyone tell if this is normal for the tree adjusting from shock or if the tree is dying from these pics?
