Dying red top trees - Knowledgebase Question

Summerville, So
Question by correllj

Don't know official names but they are called red tops in the south. Mine are 15 years old and suddenly they are dying and nothing seems to help. I have used fungicide and pesticide products. Is there anything to help them?

Without knowing precisely what's going on with your trees I'm at a loss to try to suggest a remedy. Sometimes the problem is with the roots and you won't see symptoms until rot sets in. Once it does, the tops of the trees begin dying, followed by the lower branches. Wish I had something more encouraging to offer. If the trees are valuable you may want to hire a certified arborist to inspect the trees. Good luck with your red tops!
