Default ye olde apple tree

photogtaphed 2 days ago.
His days are counted, I believe. The hot, dry summers lately didn't do him good. Nevertheless I will not tear him out as long he's showing even slightest signs of life
(Trees are my friends).

That is a haggard looking apple tree, shame. Do you water when the
weather is hot and dry ?

No, I usually don't, except for newly planted trees..That very tree in the image is at least 45 years old, and that is - concerning apple-trees on low-growing root-stocks -, something about 100 years in human measures.

btw Years ago I have aleady graftes scions of this tree onto another stock, which are doing very fine.

Thanks for looking. Have a nice day!.

I have tried apples a couple times here. Failure every time. The
varieties were from Israel and supposed to be able to withstand our
summer heat and humidity. I live close to the Gulf of Mexico and I
think that has something to do with the trees not surviving.
