I looked at a tree today that had been exposed to a house fire last spring. Half of the canopy has healthy looking limbs and the leaves are dropping normally for this time of year. The half exposed to the fire last spring has most of the leaves still on it, brown and shriveled. So the fire was in april before the leaves had sprouted. Sometime in the spring the leaves set and then within weeks they turned brown but didn't drop. A few branches have cracked bark I assume from the heat. What I found in the canopy was a full bud set for next season and the branches were still green and flexible. They are asking the survivability. I'm thinking if its set buds for next year it should come back. However, it leafed out then they dies this past spring. Do any of the super arborists have any experience with this situation and could provide some additional insight?
