Dying Poplar Tree
My husband and I recently moved to Tuscaloosa. There is a poplar tree that is a line tree between us and our neighbors. The tree has been here about 10 years and has some height to it. When it leafed out this Spring, some of the lower branches were dead. Now more are dying. We have given it extra water during the hot weather. We have had two so-called experts look at it. One didn't have a clue and the other thought it was just natural dying back. I don't agree with the diagnosis as it is progressively dying on both sides of the tree and near the top as well as the lower branches where we first noticed the problem. Has anyone out there had a problem like this? I really hate to lose this tree as it gives us shade in the afternoon.
