Q: I live in SW Florida, and I have a magnolia tree that is about 60 feet tall. From the top of the tree and down to the ground, these long stringy branches are hanging. It's really beautiful and gives the tree a haunted look. However, I am noticing that magnolia are growing at the end of the strings almost touching the ground. They are dropping and dying. What do I do?
Call a certified arborist - a tree doctor to take a look at it. A misdiagnosis could be end of the tree and it will cost a lot more to take it down when it dies. To find one in your area go to www.isa-arbor.com. Best Nancy
