Q.Maidenhair tree

Zone Devonport | Ianwaller added on January 13, 2018 | Answered

My Maidenhair tree is looking unwell – leaves are small and dull in colour – we have lived here for ten years a owner before us for 30 years and I would think the tree is probably close to 40 years old. Any suggestions what I may do to restore the health of this tree

Since these trees can well outlive humans, I am likely to say that there is a pH issue in the soil. You can help condition this back by using both dolomitic lime, and iron sulphate. These two should restore your tree to health.
