: Hi I have a weeping willow tree that is running sap down the trunk of the tree from top to bottom. it is also losing some of it's leaves they turn yellow then fall off. he gets 20 gallons of water every three days and every month I give him a mix of rabbit manure soaked in water. could you help me. carol
I'm wondering why you give your tree so much water every three days. Are you in a drought area or the desert? Sounds like too much water. I also realize that your manure tea is 'natural', but it sounds like too much. I would say to water your tree once a week if it's not mature and it isn't getting an inch of rain per week. Also, I would suggest you stop the manure tea for a while and see if your tree recovers.
Let us know how it's doing in a month.
