Q.Linden Tree Drooping

Zone 59101 | Anonymous added on July 31, 2021 | Answered

I have a Greenspire Linden that is on it’s third summer and it has been growing and filling nicely, that is, until it got hot this year. The top 1 ft of the branches that point straight up have begun to flop, or droop, instead of pointing straight up. I noticed a couple of other branches near the top have also started to do the same thing, at about one foot from the tip, with one looking completely done-for today. Two weeks ago I started using a root waterer and last week I bought a Ross root feeder and added the appropriate amount of fertilizer with it along the drip line. It didn’t seem to help, although the tree appeared to grow some, while wilting at the same time. The tree does get plenty of water.

I suspect it is an environmental issue due to the hot weather, but be alert to the diseases Linden trees are susceptible to. It also could be too much water. Wait till the soil starts to dry out before watering.
