Any hope for my walnut tree?
I bought this tree 2 years ago and planted it in the autumn. I didn’t make a massive hole around it but I did make sure I didn’t plant it to deep. The first year, it looked half dead. I removed all of the dead branches. The second year (this year) it started off looking quite good in spring and I had some hope but this is it now. I have watered it plenty and fed it. I have mulched and kept weeds away. Should I just give it up as a lost cause as it looks very sad now. More branches are dying off and there is a crack in the bark that doesn’t look great. I’d love to leave it and be patient but I don’t want to waste my time.
