Has anyone had a problem with dying trees because of the drought?
I had a tree die two years ago. Another died this year. And the arborist now tells me that two more are dead. It's a real shame because these are 50 yr old trees.
Anyone else having trees die?

My mom live in the Triad and she lost this beautiful 50 year old white pine tree last year.
And an oak prior year.

Problem with a drought or the lack of rain it takes two years to know if it killed your trees.
If the area you are in is not under water restrictions it would be a good idea to take a hose and give them a good watering.

She has this other 50 year old I guess out of desperation for roots to get water is pulling up her driveway to try to get to the other side which is a potential problem because that is where her septic system is.
Call your county agriculture department and find out how much water your type of trees might need and how often to water them.

Hi Sunny-

I did not know about the two year delay for dead trees, that makes me even more scared! Trust me I would had been watering the trees, but they are at a rental I own, it's not like the tenant would water them.

That really bites since your not always there. They would not have to be water daily since ground is not as dry at root structure.
You might have someone at agricuture office see if they have some kind of tree test if that exists and also see if there is a disease spreading.

This was not a normal seasonal drought we had this year. I am more than confident this state forum will see higher than normal requests for tree removal requests about summer time of next year. Call your agriculture department they will know
