Has lots of reddish brown spots and the leaves on the bottom half of the tree have dried up. We have deep watered since planting a month ago. Our soil is alkaline but have added iron, B12, and bloom. Our soil is high pH. Is tree dying or do we have bugs?
Please contact your local extension office (found under gov't in your phone book) They will be able to help you determine exactly what is going on and how to best treat it.
