We live on a bayou in southern Mississippi. After record rainfall this summer, the base of our 60 foot southern magnolia tree was covered with two feet of flood water for 5 days. Soon afterwards it began dying from top to bottom. Upon examining the tree a few weeks after flooding, there is a lot of white powder deposits around the base of the tree. Is there anything we can do to save this tree? "It's our grandchildren's favorite climbing tree."LOL
