I planted 12 Nativ Nursery trees (4 deer pear, 4 crabapple, and 4 kieffer pear, all around 24-36") a month ago here in SW PA. All of the the trees arrived with green leaves that turned brown a week later and haven't changed since. The trees have experienced a few frosts in this time. This is my first time planting trees like this, although the trees were planted as instructed. The trees were also protected when planted with tubes and cages. Are the trees still going through climate shock or is this a sign that the trees are probably dead? I'm concerned. I planted 25 bare root PGC applle seedlings at the same time that hadn't produced leaves yet, and they all now have leaves and look good. This is my first time planting trees, so I have no prior experience to compare to.
