5 yr old ligustrum tree is not showing growth and leaves are sparse as compared to a much older one that is denser and greener which is only five feet away. What should I check?

Diane,

If the foliage is healthy (no leaf spot fungus) I would provide the plant with a little turf type fertlizer (about 1/2 cup in a 4ft. circle) and then water it in well. Lightly shear the plant to encourage regrowth and branching for denser growth.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
