The Q&A Archives: Tree not growing???

Question: My bradford tree has not grown in 4 years and leaves on the end of branches are dead. Whats wrong with this tree??

Answer: It doesn't sound as though your tree is very happy. Lack of growth can be due to drought stress or lack of nutrients. Try watering deeply once each week and feeding with a slow release granular fertlizer (in amounts as recommended on the label). I'd prune the branches back to remove the dead leaves and to encourage healthy new growth. Best wishes with your Bradford pear!
