how to save my melaleuca leucadendra

Anonymous added on August 1, 2015 | Answered

I have rang Botanical gardens in Qld and was told it could be a fungus causing all leaves to be dying on my tree. I have also typed in every known reason on internet and have come to conclusion maybe it's root rot. It was a very healthy tree which I planted 7 years ago and now is approx 25 feet tall. We have had heaps of rain here over the past 2 months. If it is root rot, is there anything I can do to save it? After looking up all the different types of fungus, I don't think it's one of them.

There is no cure of root rot.

If you can pull the stems from the crown of the plant this is root rot.
