Help w/ Ficus Tree Dying branch by branch
Hi! I have a 20 year old Ficus tree that is dying branch by branch. Its leaves turn yellow and drop and then it begins with new growth. The new growth shrivels up and dies. I have waited until I am sure the branch is dead before pruning. At first it was the main lead branch, and I was hoping it had stopped, but have lost 1 more large branch and now another has started to do the same thing. The other branches seem to be doing fine and are actively putting out new leaves. This started in December.
Any ideas? It isn't root bound, it has been fertilized, no bugs I can see (unless they are in the soil), and its care hasn't changed. Since "parts" seem to be healthy, I am at a loss.
Really hate to lose this one!
