Hi. I have had a lot of trouble trying to identify my tree/shrub. It was suggested Magnolia, could that be correct. I am also having a lot of trouble trying to work out what is wrong and how to fix it. I have searched for caterpillars and there are non I can see. The brown sections just crumble at the lightest touch. What can I do to save my tree, Please any assistance would be appreciated.
