I have had two Turkey figs for 4 years now and every year in the fall they go dormant. The branches darken and die off. In the spring they regrow from the root...why and how to fix? Thank you Cujo

Though the Brown Turkey variety is considered a good choice for a colder location, it is best to add some winter protection.
Your tree is experiencing total winter die back, but the roots are insulated enough to survive.
