70 year old magnolia appears to be dying
This beautiful huge magnolia tree had roots running across a large part of my backyard. In January, it became necessary to replace the sewerage system from the house to the city connection at the back of the property. MANY of the roots coming into the yard were damaged and some had to be removed. Recently, I noticed that my large tree did not have a lot of green leaves on it and had not bloomed. Is it possible that the tree is in shock (hopefully) and not dying? Any recommendations for treatment would be greatly appreciated. thanks S.Lipscomb Baton Rouge, Louisiana
