We bought our fig tree about 18 months ago. It is about 6 feet tall. Last year we got good figs. We live in northeast Houston. After this winter, the tree started to get leaves, but they have all fallen off, and it is completely bare. I am afraid that it may be dead or dying. It gets plenty of sun and water. What do you think is wrong, and is there anything you can suggest to help it?
