Post-Hurricane Tree Recovery

New leaves on just about everything--two weeks after Hurricane Irma blew through.  I've watered a lot, and we've gotten decent rain.

Ive been misting with copper too which has noticeably helped.

You should try to right the glenn back to vertical with a vehicle and tow strap. My glenn did that about 10 years ago, and today it still bugs me that I didn't bring it back to vertical when I had the chance.

Thanks Jeff  :)...because of the location of the tree I cannot drive a vehicle on or near it ( sprinklers) and partly very close to my neighbor's yard also  :(.

Thanks for the link phantomcrab.

Photo #1 is a Cogshall mango and photo #2 is a Lychee tree  :D
