Tulip tree transplant
I transplanted a 3 foot tulip tree from PA to Arkansas about two weeks ago, Memorial Day. I know that you shouldn't transplant in the middle of the summer, but the circumstances were as they were. I was able to keep the feeder root intact and planted it as is recommended. I water it with a Treegator jr., which slowly drips about 15 gallons of water in the ground over a 5-8 hour timeframe. I have been placing the treegator about every three days. The weather has been hot and windy. Some of the leaves are turning brown and dying off. Is this from the heat and wind or from the transplant? I don't think the tree is dead yet, but I really want to baby this tree through the fall. If all of the leaves die off, will it make it? I could really use some good advice on this one! What am I doing wrong or if I'm doing OK, is there more I could be doing? I do notice some green buds coming in and some new small leaves that have sprouted since I've planted it. Thanks for all of the advice in advance!
