My Mulberry Tree is dying in Tucson what can I do? This is a problem that many of us face in Tucson. For a stretch of years these tree's were planted in bulk as the centerpiece and often the only tree in front yards. We have enjoyed the beauty of the trunks and the shade (a good thing in Tucson) of the large leaves.

Like the elderly a tree of this age is prone to sickness much easier than when it was an adolescent. So I recommend you get them on a good watering program. You can read some of other blogs on how to do that and what program works for you. (drip systems do not water tree's) After insuring that your tree's is properly fed with moisture get it on a yearly fertilizer. Again research our blogs. (Do not use steaks as they are very in effective) The last bit of advice I have is call a qualified Arborist to do the cutting on your tree. Poorly Educated cutting can open the tree up to micro organisms, hinder photosynthesis by improperly cutting vital branches and overall speed up the death of your tree. Again research our blog articles to help with the correct way to determine if an Arborist is qualified or DIY articles if you.
