Question From: Becker, Minnesota, United States
Q: I was given a Magnolia tree that wasn’t leading out well. This happened two years ago. This year I received no leaves but have some suckers. The trunk is green & healthy. Any suggestions as to how to get this tree back?
The trunk is dead and the plant is sending up suckers in an effort to live. If you cut off the trunk you will have a multi stemmed tree. Cut off all but one and it may develope into a tree. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
