Help With My Weeping Willow
I'm wondering if anyone can help me, I was given a Weeping Willow Tree by a friend and I believe it is dying. We had to transplant the tree from their house 50 miles away to our house and all the leaves are dead on the tree...We planted it as soon as we got home and gave it losts of water...I love this tree and wonder if I can save it...we didn't tarp the tree because we were just told this after I started talking about it dying so it was in alot of wind and it was very hot that day...could it just be in shock?.....HELP PLEASE

The leaves are probably wind burnt! I would just keep watering and babying it and if doesn't go too deep in shock it will probably be alright. The same thing happened to a crepe myrtle tree I got from my mother in law and just when I thought there was no saving it, it surprised me with new leaves!! Good luck! I look forward to reading more of your blogs entries!! Welcome to the Stew!!
I would just try to keep the soil around it moist and hopefully it will be alright. Maybe before long someone else will come along and be able to tell you more. Everyone here at the Stew are really nice folks and try to be really helpful. You could also post your questions on the forum to get answers. I really hope I have helped some!!
Welcome to Garden Stew.
Just Wondering....Is there anything I can add to water to help out the roots? The guys cut the roots big time and was wondering if I should put something on the tree to help more?
I would use a rooting hormone. Just go to your local nursery or I use Home Depot. Tell them whats going on and they will point you in the right direction. I use Miracle Gro root stimulater for all my transplants. Works great. Good luck! Keep us posted and I would love to see pics of the before and after pics of the babying you give this guy!
Should I see the results this summer or will this last till next summer....so sorry this is all new to me and I really love this tree :( I added 2 pictures in my first post...Not so pretty right now...I know I have it bad for this tree when I find myself praying for it :)
Was wondering how your tree is comeing along ?
my tree is still weeping but not in a good way, should I cut some of the limbs back or just leave it alone? thanks for keeping in touch :)
I can see green on some of the stems so its not dead. So thats some good news. Did you start feeding it root hormones? This can take a few days to start seeing a diff in plants so with a tree that large, it might take awhile. Go talk to a professional tree man. See what they think you should do as far as cutting it back. I would think that you shouldnt have more tree top than roots, just like a rose bush. You cant have more bush than root when you dig it up or theres a good chance youll lose it.
I would check to see if the branches are dead before cutting it too much. Sometimes trees drop their leaves due to stress. Test a few branches to see if they are pliable or if they just snap off. Then cut back to where they are pliable or alive inside if the ends are dead. Sometimes that helps. Dooley
