Mountain Ash Tree Branches Are Drooping

Question From: Redmond, Oregon, United States
Q: My Mountain Ash trees are loaded with berries, & the branches are drooping a lot , is the load of berries causing this or could it be lack of H20? I appreciated your help

A: If you are watering you will not have to worry about drought issues. Check the soil around the base of your tree. It should be moist . If not water it. Leaves will wilt before branches droop. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
