Can it be saved?

Recommended Posts

Wow, a consensus between all the posters :D

 

If you're going to replace it I'd be tempted to try to dig out as much as the root mass as is possible. Some will disagree and say that it isn't necessary but, IMHO, leaving the stump will provide a handy banquet for Honey fungus just when you're planting a new, stressed, tree. 

 

I know it's more effort and maybe not entirely necessary, but it would do no harm to carefully dig (or grind) the stump out.

Thanks Gary for the tip. We will definitely be replacing it and if it died from natural causes so to speak i think wise to dig it up properly to give the new one a good chance of surviving.

This tree looks dry. It needs fertilizer. Do you use any kind of fertilizer for trees? How old is this tree?

The tree looks dead. Because it is. No amount of fertiliser will revive it. Death happens, age is irrelevant.

 

Get rid of it and plant a replacement.

 

As an aside, fertilising for the sake of fertilising is pointless, expensive, and bad practice.

Maybe not the pruning technique but his equipment could of been contaminated from a previous job.

Genword you should really start to study trees properly  your inexperience is obvious. Why don't you go to collage for a year or two

Are word generators practising their artificial intelligence  allowed to enrol into college as easily as one may subscribe to arbtalk?
