Myrtle Tree Problem


Anonymous added on May 10, 2011 | Answered

My Myrtle tree is 3 years old. I pruned it this year to shape it. Now the leaves and branches are growing out, but they are dying and dropping off. What is wrong with my tree?

It sounds like you may have a fungus, though it is hard to say which one and many can cause this. Fortunately, all fungus can be treated with a fungicide. Treat the trees with a fungicide. I personally like neem oil as it will also treat for any pests the tree has and is safe for people and pets.
