    Young Shumard Oak looking bad, can it survive?

    I planted 2 young Shumard Oak's in March of this year. About mid April to May I noticed that the leafs were getting brown and curled at the edges. Recently it has gotten worse. It has been extremely hot and dry here in the Dallas, TX area this year.

    The other tree about the same time this one started getting brown, it dropped about half of its green leafs on the ground, but the leafs on the other tree now are still green.

    They are both in full sun on the south side of the house, planted in clay soil. I water approx once per week.

    Does this tree look like it will make it this year and come back again? (I will attach 3 pictures of the tree.)

    Thank you for your help.

    RE: Young Shumard Oak looking bad, can it survive?

    I can tell you've watered it allright since the grass is so green near the tree.
    It may still be drought stressed and it may need an extra weekly watering if it's new.
    Look into getting a treegator (treegator.com) or similar device. You simply zip it up, fill it with water and let it drain out slowly over the next 12-24 hours. It takes all the guess work out of it and you know that a good amount of water is getting in there and not evaporating or running off. I think the tree will recover after some time just don't drop the ball with the water..
