Tree that just won't break bud

Postby Canadian Ent » May 12, 2013 9:08 am

I planted 3 pyramid oaks a few weeks back.

Two have broken bud about two weeks ago. The third has not.

It seems healthy - I have scratched the bark and see green underneath. I've plucked off two buds and they are green inside. I don't think there were any issues in planting.

I am just being impatient? It is the only tree in the vicinity that has not broken bud yet.

Pollination has nothing to do with bud break.....
The tree has a root issue and may need more time to bud out. Keep the soil moist...time will tell if the tree will make it.
