galagala(5)May 21, 2013

I have 15 Enterprise, which looked healthy in early spring. Gave them 10-10-10 in early march. Now 10 of them look like I may have to cut them down! They have that dead look, but still show a little green on the tips.Can't believe I gave them to much fertlizer! The other 300 got the same amount of fert? All responses appreciated!!! They have been in the ground for 4 years.

Is it possible they got hit by frost?

You'd have a hard time killing 4 yr trees with fertilizer. I'd suspect something more like collar rot or some type root issue. If all the other trees are OK and 10 of one are dying it should either be the root, scion, or a really wet spot.

Has the spring been really wet?

My apples and pears were unfazed by 24F two weeks ago. Doubt it's spring freeze but could be winter cold, that should require -30 or -40F.
