The Q&A Archives: Recovery for transplanted Pistache tree

Question: About 2-3 weeks ago we transplanted our Chinese Pistache that we had planted as a 15 gallon a year ago. Many leaves are now yellow with green veins or green spotting. My husband has applied B1 with almost every watering. Is it possible we've given it too much B1? Do you have any advice to help the tree recover?

Answer: It is possible to overdo, so hold off on further applications of B1. The yellowing leaves are just a symptom of stress, brought on by being transplanted. All you can do at this point is water your Pistache tree deeply once each week and wait patiently until it establishes its root system. Some of the dropped foliage will be replaced (that's when you'll know for sure that it is recovering). Next spring it will produce lots of healthy new foliage. Best wishes with your tree!
