Question From: A. MILLARD - Oakville, Ontario, Canada
Q: We planted a Yellow Bird Magnolia tree last spring and this year there is only a shute of leaves coming from the root ball an d the tree has no signs of life on it. Is it dead?
I'd say so Ann.Your magnolia is hardy to zone 4 but is best planted in a protected area that is not subject to drying winter winds day long winter sun. Best Nancy
