Silver Linden Did Not Drop Leaves Last Fall

Question From: WISCONSIN
Q: My silver linden didn’t drop it leaves last fall. Is it dead?

A: It's a cultural problem. We had unseasonably warm weather last November and many trees became confused. Due to a frigid spring the trees are leafing out late. They will drop those leaves when the new leaf buds emerge. Be patient. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
