    Hello! Im from California and my grandmothers Calamansi tree is dying in our front yard. We figured this out yesterday when the leaves turned yellow/orange.
    Turns out my grandfather accidentally put salt on the soil of the calamansi tree. I need some help, is there any way to revive this tree back to health? Please help!

    Lots of irrigation (to runoff levels) to wash out the salt is the only way that would work. But it may well already be too late to succeed.

    I know it is almost 10 years too late for an update, but the product listed by Junglekeeper worked like a charm! Til this day, the calamansi tree is still alive. Thank you haha

    Never too late for an update! Do you happen to remember what the product was that @Jungledeeper suggested? The link to Salt Remediation is broken now.
