I live in the central virginia, and we haven't had much rain at all this summer, or really even since the spring....anyway, I have a new construction property and there are a couple of trees in my backyard that appear to be dead. I assume it's a combination of no rain and/or the fact that when they cleared some trees, based on darwinian principles, some trees will make it and some will not.....since some trees are no longer there anymore. In any event, it's about a 50 foot oak (or similar), and the leaves have actually gone from light brown to dark brown in just the past couple weeks.....with other trees around it still having green leaves. I'm I need to take it down? I don't want it to fall down...even in heavy winds, it NEVER moves, and I assume the roots are well-rooted into the yard. I also have a skinny, 50 foot pine tree that appears to be dead - all brown needles at the top. Thanks.
