Q.Redwood Tree

Anonymous added on July 26, 2011 | Answered

I planted a redwood tree a year ago and it seems to have been thriving until recently. In the last two weeks, the top of the tree has been wilting and then dying. It still shows new buds and growth on the ends of the lower branches. What can I do? I don’t want to lose the tree.

Please contact your local extension office (found under gov't in your phone book) for help in identify exactly what is wrong with your tree. There has been confirmation that Phytophthora ramorum, the fungus associated with Sudden Oak Death, does also attack Redwood trees. The extension service should be able to identify the problem and offer solutions on how to control the issue.
