Ornamental Plum
« on: June 09, 2010, 07:06:43 pm »
I have an Ornamental Purple Plum tree that is about 8 yrs old.  This past winter we sustained a ton of tree damage in my area.  Due to some rather minor damage to my trees, I had them lightly topped out.  The Purple Plum had only to top taken off along with a few broken branches.  The tree got quite a few tiny leaves on it this spring, it didn't flower, and all the leaves have dried up and nothing is coming on.  WHAT HAPPENED?  Is it dead?

I wouldn't be surprised if your area had too quick of a Spring like my area (compared to recent years).  Maybe that is why the tree seemingly did not respond well to the treatment prior to Spring.  Most likely it is not dead.  Just a hunch without more data but I hope this helps.

Good luck, and take care of that wonderful tree!
