Magnolia tree gets special watering care

DESTIN -- The Magnolia tree at Harborwalk Village is more than 130 years old.Lots of bare limbs have some people worried the tree is dying.
Today, a team from Coastline Tree Service and Hy-tech Irrigation installed a special watering system. It will pump vitamins and hormones directly to the tree's roots.

Certified Arborist Aubrey Santucci said, "It's been under a tremendous amount of stress throughout the last several years, considering its age, the construction going around, irrigation issues."

Santucci says the tree's root system is much smaller than it should be. She's recommending cutting back the canopy, and removing of L.E.D lights that hang from the tree's branches.
