Dying Tree

Anonymous added on April 19, 2011 | Answered

I had to dig up my spiral Alberta spruce and replant it. It looks like it's dying because the bark is brittle and falling off. It is all brown, no green at all but some of the branches aren't so brittle. They are a little red and don't snap in half easily. Is there anything I can do to try to bring it back to life? It is just now spring. Should I give it a few weeks to see any life?

It's probably in shock from the transplanting. If it's not too far gone and with some TLC, it should bounce back. The following articles should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/what-does-a-dying-tree-look-like-signs-that-a-tree-is-dying.htm
