Will my Red Maple tree live?
I have a Bloodgood Red Maple that was planted mid-May in Canton, GA. It is now dropping leaves like crazy. I've determined that between the sprinkler system and me hand watering, it has gotten way too much water. I've since stopped the hand watering. While it is above ground level I'm thinking it settled a bit and would do better planted higher. Because is so hot right now I know I probably shouldn't pull it out and replant it higher. Will it last through the summer? Have I killed it? Or do you think I should replant it higher in the Fall?
