Wow, that tree at the base looks great. We haven't seen it looking that healthy in quite awhile. Any extra water applied to the base of that tree would be greatly appreciated.

I'm confused by your comment. Did you not realize that this is your own photo from 3 years ago?

It's a simple request. Just give any extra water you have to the tree. When the photo was posted the tree was looking great with its new foliage, but now not so much. CA has lost 103,000,000 trees due to the drought. Do what you can to mediate the situation by giving this tree your extra water.
Perhaps the tree can "pay it forward" by out competing the poison oak that frequently grows in this area of Texas Canyon.

No, no, I wasn't confused by your comment about the water and the tree, that made sense, but I was confused by your original comment where you said, "Wow, that tree at the base looks great." Maybe I'm misreading something, but it sounded like you were surprised by something you saw in a photo you posted 3 years earlier as if it was just posted by someone else.

Jeff...I was just amazed at how healthy that tree looks in the photo compared to its current state where it's dried out, brittle, and lacking in foliage. Hopefully, the most recent rains will bring it back to its former glory.
