I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. We purchased this tree in may of this year and it was expensive. So any help in saving it will be much appreciated.
1. watering: The root ball (container) has a very loamy soil and the soil around the root ball is much more clay based so the root ball dries quick and the soil around the plant stays moist much longer???
2: It is positioned as to recieve afternoon sun, morning shade. We did have a very hot summer here and I believe a little bit is sun scorch. temp. close to 100. but past few weeks cooled to 80's and it still worsens.
When we bought this tree it was so full lush and green. Now it is half as thick due to branches dying underneath. and brown. Please help
