I went to the corner of my property and found this BC near the point of death. Its roots have been soaked in the salty storm flood. The weeds are also choking it. I dug it up and bare rooted it. Then I went ahead and chopped the most dead trunk until I found live tissue. Then I went ahead and sorted out the root. It is in a big shallow pot now sitting in the shade. I hope it lives.

Nice.
BC can be quite sensitive to elevated saline levels.
good save.
