Trunk on Avocado Tree Turning Brown and Dying

I have had an avocado tree for over a year now and this spring I noticed that the trunk was getting brown. I wouldn't want it to die as it is part of my family. Any suggestions?

avocados are finicky as to climate. They don't like too much humidity as they are fro a California climate. I'm not sure where you are or whether you have it indoors or not but it could be a symptom of Root Rot.

My dad grows his avocado plants on his back patio during the summer. He lives near Seattle, Washington. I think the climate is pretty similar to Ireland so you might try this during warmer weather.

It looks like you are growing it indoors. This site recommends fish emulsion to help simulate growth. My mom used it for every plant she ever touched and always had a green thumb!

Just know the stuff smells awful... at least to me...so you may want to use it in a well ventilated space. Plus follow all package guidelines carefully. Watch any plant foods around pets and children!

If you know you are watering it correctly, you may have a pest problem.

Overwatering can cause root rot.
