Washingtonia fast becoming yellow after planting
After planting both Washingtonia Robusta trees (1-2 days later) started browning ends of foliage and yellowing a lot. I water sufficiently every day. They were transported about 50 miles from the nursery in a horizontal position on a flat bed truck. The trees foliage was beautifully green when arrived to the planting site. Is this related to planting stress?
P.S. The way the nursery owner planted them was he drilled a round hole about 1,5 size of the rootballs and then dropped the trees in, filled with the soil and compacted the soil around the palms with a soil compacter and left. Rootballs were not wet while being planted. I watered them an hour later or so and every day after.
