How to Save a Dying Tree
Not all trees can be saved and the reason for their decline is not always clear. However, they may bounce back if the right conditions are present.
Not much can be done in the Winter while the trees are in dormancy. However, the Spring to Fall window is a good time to take countermeasures.
Unless over abundance of water is a suspect, supplying more water for easy availability often helps.
Spreading fertilizer or compost near the base of the tree will also often help to strengthen the tree.
If insect damage is suspected, spreading grub killer after the first freeze may also help.
Within about two months after the treatment new growth should show up on the tree indicating a step in the right direction.
