Hi all,
I live outside Rochester, We had one one of the wettest springs on record, then only 1.4 inches of rain since early June. I have an established Seven Son flower tree all of the leaves yellowed the turn brown and crispy. I was talking tonight to my neighbor 3 houses down and the same thing is happening/happened to 2 apple trees and a cherry bush. I don't plan on cutting the tree down till I see if it comes back next year. We are looking for any ideas/ suggestions. I was thinking of doing the 2 minutes with running hose a week and maybe some tree tone( organic fert.). Has anyone else experenced this or an opinion/ I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks in advance

RE: leaves drying up/ browning on trees

Seven Sons isn't at all drought tolerant so you should probably be giving it extra water in dry periods and mulch to conserved moisture. I am having a simlar problem with my red buckeye as the soil where it is planted is draining to well.
