    So I ended up having a couple Arborist come by my house and inspect the tree and they said it was due to lack of water.... I’ve been doing a 24hr soak once a week for one month and she said after the second month do a 24hr soak every two weeks. It’s onlt been three weeks and already starting to see a little bit of new growth I’ll keep everyone updated.
