Tulip Tree, Overwatered

Anonymous added on February 12, 2014 | Answered

A tulip tree that is approx. 5 metres tall (existing) has dropped all its leaves after regular watering to establish new turf surrounding it.The roots may have been sodden for 2 weeks until drain was installed and irrigation cut back. Tree has no leaves and no obvious buds. Do you think it could come back? Is there anything I can do? (soil around base is not too wet now) Any tips much appreciated.

Were the leaves turning yellow before dropping? This would be an indication of root rot. Here is more info on root rot and how to treat it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/root-rot-in-garden-plants.htm
