Last year my five year old semi-dwarf apple tree (a golden delicious) had lots of wonderful apples. This spring it was slow to bud, then never bloomed, looked dead, so after everything else was far along, I gave up on it and went to dig it up. There were NO ROOTS! None whatsoever---the tree fell over into my hands. What happened in one winter? I'm ready to replant, so want to know what went wrong. Any ideas? Thanks.

If in the north maybe a problem with mice eating the roots. We had lots of damage from mice this year. Maybe too wet and they rotted.
Did you fertilize when you planted? Maybe burned the roots if you did. Maybe the plant wasn't grafted all that well when you got it and didn't notice, if it was grafted.
Anything at all sound like a could be?
