Maple Tree Wilting

stonecolde70 added on June 30, 2011 | Answered

My newly planted Crimson King Maple tree's leaves are beginning to wilt. The leaves on this newly planted tree are wilting and I am not sure if it is dying because of lack of water. I have started to water it at night daily. Could I end up over watering it?

It is really, really hard to overwater a newly planted tree. Unless it is sitting in standing water, it is not getting too much water.

It may have transplant shock. This article will help:
