Q.What caused a Mulberry tree to half die?

Zone 85714 | Anonymous added on April 21, 2020 | Answered

I live in Tucson, AZ and have five well-established mulberry trees that were on the property when I bought it. They all appear to be literally half dead. One half is dead, no bark no leaves…the other half thriving. What caused this?

Are there holes in the trunk? If so, borers may have infested the tree. It also could be a soil borne disease that is affecting part of the root system. Contact an arborist or your local cooperative extension service for a more definitive diagnosis.
