Q.Help Pussywillow tree is dying
My dog attacked my tree a few weeks back. I didnt know what to do so I put a little coconut oil on the area where most of the bark was damaged. I cut some of the branches that were too far gone. I hoped the plant would do ok. I repotted it but left in in a container. It looks black with just a bit of green on the base/trunk. Can you help?
