Are the trees in my yard dying from the drought?
Many hardwood trees appear to be dead or dying, however some of these trees may be experiencing early dormancy or shedding individual branches to conserve their own resources - especially in the Elm tree, Texas Red Oaks and Water Oak trees. Dormancy or shedding is a natural method in which trees protect themselves to ensure their survivability.
