Oak tree leaves are all brown

ccmarketgirl(9a TX)July 5, 2011

Hi all:

I've posted before on this cantankerous tree. We planted it in fall and lost all it's leaves about a month later, my guess is due to shock, but sprouted leaves in spring and it was looking good. My husband did a little trimming around April and now all the leaves are brown (although they haven't fallen off). We're watering for a couple of hours once a week using a sprinkler. Am I not watering enough? or did the trim send it back into shock?

Thanks,

Carrie

Probably dead. Cut the tip of a branch to see if is green. If it is, it's alive. If it is brittle and brown keep cutting back 'til you see green. If you cant find green, it's dead.
