    Theres nothing to worry about. The curling leaves are still functional, and will support tree growth. It shouldn't affect the other tree at all. Keep me posted on the tree condition.

    RE: help, my pin oak is dying

    Tree stakes are a waste of time and money. You only need to fertilize a tree if you do a soil test, and have determined that your tree is not getting a particular nutrient that that particular tree needs to thrive.

    Think about it. The stake sits there a while, and begins to disintegrate into that tiny little spot in the soil. Even if you put 8 of them around a tree, you are still only affecting a tiny area of the soil. Plus, the stakes are quite often stolen by small animals; squirrels eat them.

    Remove the stakes. Do a soil test to determine what, if any, nutrients are deficient, then treat accordingly. But even at that, in most cases, trees get all the food they need from whatever you feed your lawn.
