    Catalpa Tree problems

    [=darkblue][/color]
    Hi there,I hail from Willis Michigan and am having problems with my Catalpa Tree. The tree is 3yrs old and still very small but is trying to widen-out, but the limbs keep falling over and breaking off. I know it will take some time for my tree to blossom,but at this rate it will never happen. A I doing something wrong? The Catalpa Tree is very sentimental to me.Can you help me??? Marlean

    RE: Catalpa Tree problems

    Any pics? That would help, of course. Do you have a caterpillar problem? I *know* catalpa's tend to get infested with 'catalpa worms' around here, and just saw a big tree yesterday with several 'wprms' on each leaf eating away. I hear they are great for use as fishing bait, fwiw, LOL.

    Just a thought on the bugs...any signs of damage(s) noticed?? Are the limbs dry/dead when fallen off?

    RE: Catalpa Tree problems

    Is it in a really windy location?

    I have one about the same age. The leaves are huge (same size as a full-grown one) and it REALLY gets blown around during storms, but it hasn't lost any branches yet.

    I agree, some pix would help.
