OK, I see, but will it die?

Posted on: July 14, 2009

In most cases no, because of it being so late in the season (September). If the wind storm had come much earlier, more trees may have perished. If you want to see if your tree is still alive you can perform a simple scratch test. Take your thumbnail and scratch a twig that has no leaves. If it is green and/or wet then the tree is alive. If it's brown and/or dry it's dead.
