Can a tangerine tree exposed to termite tenting be saved?
My tangerine tree grows up through my wooden front porch, which was infested with termites along with my house. I pruned it back to roof level, and the day of the tenting I watered it along with all other house adjacent plants that would be under the tent. When they removed the tent, my other plants were fine, but all the leaves on my tree were brown. There are still green stalks. Is there anything I can do to save my tree? The gases they used are Sulfuryl Fluoride and Chloropicrin.

Care should be taken to only tent the structure.
You will have to wait and see as these chemicals can and will kill your plants both outdoors and indoors.
