    Are the trees planted in the same location? You could have a drainage issue. If you have compacted clay soil in one location the water may be sitting at the bottom of the planting hole where it is "drowning" the roots. Healthy root growth requires the proper balance of water and oxygen. Compacted soil does not have as much space for air and moisture.

    How often are you watering? I would recommend a deep watering once a week (giving the tree at least 5 gallons of water). During the summer months, you might water more often, but check the soil moisture content. Trees that are displaying wilting symptoms can be suffering from too much water, as well as not enough water. To check the moisture content of your soil, you can use a gardening trowel (small shovel for gardening) and dig down about 3-4 inches. If the soil is moist, you don't need more water.

    Did you give this tree any additional amendments, such as fertilizer? If the tree was a bareroot seedling, this can cause moisture to be drawn out of the roots. This is largely due to fertilizers being derived from salt compounds, which can cause a wicking effect. This is usually not as big of an issue with slow release fertilizers, but is still not recommended.

    Hmm… in that case, I would focus on the soil. Here is a link to a Cornell website that explains how you can check the drainage as well as some other helpful things to consider:

    I would be interested to know what you find.

    Did you try the method that was listed in the link I posted, or are you saying that when you water the tree, the water seemed to soak in fast?

    How often would you say you water the tree (daily, weekly)?

    Have you given the tree any additional amendments (like fertilizer)?

    Another thought I had was is the tree in a heavily shaded area?

    yes it seemed to soak in fast daily since it started the wilting because I thought mybe it was the drought no fertilizer no plenty of sun if it is the not enough water that caused the wilting now that I am watering will it recover and grow new leaves. have not tryed the method. yard is red clay.
