Care for a Eucalyptus Tree That Looks Dead

Anonymous added on May 31, 2011 | Answered

I have a silver dollar eucalyptus tree that looks dead. I planted the tree in fall and now it's spring. The whole tree is brown with no leaves and the branches are easy to break off. Can this tree be saved, or is it already dead?

This winter was particularly cold for most of the U.S. It is possible that it simply got too cold. Another possibility is that if the area it is growing is too wet, it cannot tolerate that over the winter. Here is an article to help you determine if it is dead or just on a slow start: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
