The article offers insights on feeding trees. Leaf scorch is more than a symptom of unsatisfied thirst according to Davey Tree Expert Co. field representative P. H. Willmott. Appropriate feeding is more important to prevent leaf scorching than watering. It suggests the feeding of trees with nutrients high in nitrogen. It recommends the cookbooks available at the East Orange Public Library in New Jersey.
