Dying Chilean Mesquite
HI, it has been 1 1/2 years since these tress (Chilean Mesquite)have been in the ground. then last summer we were out of town for 4 months and the people watching the trees put the irrigation on for 4 hrs a time 3 times a day and the trees have 4 one gallon immitters on them. needless to say the trees were very happy and very big. Then the winter came and i cut back the water for a deep watering once a week. during the winter i notice the trees dying. can this be a case of over watering then a total shock for the trees to stop the watering and they die. or do you think root rot set in?
Out of 60 trees i lost 10 at the same time!
Any one have any idea?
here are some picks.
