Q.Can A 14 Year Old Dragon Lady Holly Tree Get New Growth Once It Lost It’s Leaves?

Zone 07753 | Anonymous added on July 13, 2023 | Answered

I have had the soil tested and removed all mulch from around the roots, but my tree loses leaves every spring and there is no new growth. It looks very thin but otherwise healthy. Is there anything I can do?

Shearing the tree in early spring should stimulate new growth. Remove any dead or broken stems at any time during the year. Also, if you haven't been fertilizing with Holly-tone, that may help it to rejuvenate.
