Is my tree dying?
This is only my third summer in this home. There is a fig tree, not sure of type. The first two summers it did OK if watered when leaves started to turn a bit yellow. But this year the leaves have all turned brown, shriveled and dried. Not sure if just didn't water enough (very hot and dry here) or I did some moving of dirt around yard and put about 6-8" dirt around part of the base and on top of some the tree's roots. I was very careful not to dig up or cut the roots just hauled some dirt from part of the yard and dumped it in low spots. Have I killed this, or can it be saved somehow? Leaves are dry and brown but some small figs still look OK.
