The Q&A Archives: are these trees dying

Question: I just recently moved into a house with some young trees (a maple and aspen I believe) in which the top half has lost its leaves and looks to be dead. Will these continue to die off or will they rebound next year.

Answer: Drought stress can cause the symptoms you describe. If you water your trees on a regular basis, they may be able to recover. I think it's worth a try! Water each deeply once each week and you should see some improvement.

Hope so!
