    I purchased a tree just before a wee spout of cold weather. i live in what is consider zone 10 but i would say it´s more 9 so the cold was very rare.
    The tree is turning yellow and at first i was worried the nitrogen content was too high due to the horse manure.

    Should i move the tree asap or leave it to try and recover. Over the years i have found that if i am patient things come back from the dead but with this one i dont want to risk it. Please help. Has any one had full recovery from brown leaves/arms?
    Thanks =)

    If this is Araucaria bidwillii that can be burned by hard frosts. If you planted it with fresh or otherwise strong manure present that could also affect it adversely. Anything having gone brown or soon going to be brown is dead.
