Here in south Louisiana. I have an Arizona Ash that I planted 10 years ago. I have noticed in the last six to eight months that leaves begin yellowing and then dying at unusual times. Subsequently, the branches end up dying as well, while the rest of the tree in vibrant and green. I noticed that the branches that are dead/dying have pink splotches with small black dots on them. Any ideas on what is going on? I used to fertilize the tree every spring and fall but have neglected to do so over the last two years. Thanks for any input!
This is what the Dirt Doctor's forum says on them:
PROBLEMS: It is susceptible to all kinds of problems. It is short lived to begin with but also susceptible to insects, diseases and freeze damage in the northern part of the state. It was introduced as a drought tolerant, low maintenance tree but is far from it. The only reason it is on the market is that It is easy to grow from seed or stem cuttings.
PROPAGATION: Best not - it's a junky tree.
INSIGHT: These photographs make it look like a pretty good tree, but donâ€™t be fooled. In its native habitat and occasionally in the rest of Texas the fall color is outstanding, but the tree is simply not a good investment.
