Can a dog peeing on grass, bushes, trees, etc., kill that plant

both of my brothers have dogs and they pee In our backyard. my dad believes that them peeing back their killed our fruit tree that we have had for about 20 years, I disagree, I think it just died from natural causes,even though we water our lawn every other night it has been very dry here and I think that's what killed it

Frequent urine can kill it.

Sometimes It Could.. But Alot Of Dogs pee Everywhere N It Hasn't Affected Those Plants.. Plus You Could Be Right.. Dry Weather Does Affect Plants Plus The Water Could Get Dry easily Too..

Urine is natural yes, but so is mercery and that kills almost anything. The plants die because of the high levels of salt in urine. Saltwater, or anykind of salt additive kills plants. However, a big tree would most likely not be affected my small amounts of urine

Dog peeing on grass can kill the grass as well as the truck of the tree after several times of peeing on the tree. This is because of the large amount nitrogen on the grass or tree in one spot.
