i relocated a podocarpus from where it was growing 15 years
and it started turning brown, is it dead it was 7 ft tall



It might be dead, sorry. :-( How long ago did you move it? If it is 7 feet tall its roots are likely to have been 7 feet deep and as wide if not wider than the top growth. What sort of size rootball did you move it with? Have you been keeping it watered since you moved it? Have you had dry weather? All I can suggest is to give it as much TLC as possible and keep your fingers crossed. I wouldn't give up on it for quite a long time - you may be lucky.

Thanks for your reply Beattie! My father planted it years ago at his home, and moved to Orlando. I vowed to replant it at my home and there were a total of three, i babied them, the first started turning brown and finally i tossed it. The other two i planted them on the east side of my home, watered, prayed and they appeared to be doing great, then they started turning brown, yes it was very hot here FLORIDA during the summer, so i am hoping that in between the praying, watering a green spot will miraculously appear. Anyway, thanks for your reply.
