Newly planted Gingko tree: leaves dry
The nursery planted a gingko tree for me in June 2013. THe tiny tiny leaves dried up and are gone. The tree was about 7ft. There are no new leaves budding or growing. When I called the nursery they said that if Icould bend the branches and they sprang back instead of cracking or breaking, the tree was still good. I am still not convinced and would like another opinion.
It's worth waiting another few weeks to see if something grows (and make sure the soil is moist). But I suspect the tree is dead. You should see some regrowth soon if it was still alive. If it's under warranty, save your receipt. You may need it.
